Any hints how to diagnose the problem?  I don't have any custom
configurations for the X server at all, except this one:

,----[ /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-my-keyboard.conf ]
| Section "InputClass"
|     Identifier "Default Keyboard"
|     MatchIsKeyboard  "on"
|     Driver "evdev"
|     Option "XkbLayout"  "de"
|     Option "XkbVariant" "dvorak"
|     Option "XkbModel"   "evdev"
|     Option "XkbRules"   "evdev"
|     Option "XKbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"
| EndSection

I haven't touched that file for years, and as said, it used to work.

Hm, what's happening is actually quite different depending on

- Any GNOME3 GTK+3 application, or GTK+2 applications like GIMP: I can
  insert a ` by typing AltGr+< twice, or AltGr+< SPACE.

- Qt4 apps: Typing just AltGr+< immediately inserts a `, so no
  composition here.

- xterm: I can't insert ` at all.  Typing AltGr+< twice or AltGr+< SPACE
  seems to be ignored.

Like with Emacs, I can "fix" xterm by simply starting it from a GNOME
terminal.  Then typing AltGr+< has the same composing behavior as in
GNOME3 applications.

Oh, interestingly, I can also make Qt4 apps using the composing behavior
by starting them from a gnome-terminal...
