Dead keys not working in KDE

After some problems in a SuSE 8.0 box upgrading to KDE 3.1.4, I cannot write 
vocals with tilde such as 'á' or 'ó' we need in Spanish Language.

KDE can display such characters, can cut and paste, I can write it in console 
mode (no X mode). I've set proper language, the keyboard, the layouts and a 
lot of things without success. Some config file is weird and I have no idea 
what is wrong. I have other box with same OS, same options and working OK. 

As example, when I try to write 'á' y get 'a'. I can get it from keyboard. It 
is as if dead key is not working properly. 

Any help about what may be wrong is welcome.

Thanks in advance.
