You probably have some key translations defined for these characters. See C-h b (describe-bindings) for details.


Describe-bindings does not help me much. I tried C-h k ý, though. Under windows emacs (where all the accented characters behave alike), it gives this output:

  ý (translated from 7 ý) runs the command self-insert-command, which is an
  interactive built-in function in `C source code'.

  It is bound to many ordinary text characters.

  (self-insert-command n)

  Insert the character you type.
  Whichever character you type to run this command is inserted.

And similarly for all other accented characters.

Under emacs -nw, C-h k ý does display "ý-" in the minibuffer, as if it were a prefix command. After pressing any key, the same description is displayed as in windows case, and the second key is inserted into the current buffer (I can provide a screencast again, if my description is not clear.) The accented characters assigned to keys 2 - 6 behave as in the windows case.

BTW, if I change the keyboard layout via the window manager, all the accented keys work correctly. However, it breaks many standard emacs shortcuts, so it is not the way to go.
