Screenshots + example file

Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.5.1) 
OS:                Linux

Konsole 2.5, shipped with Ubuntu 10.X, kde 4.5.1, does not display accents, if
these are decomposed (so a separate charater, say o, e or a, and (mostly two)
following bytes to indicate an accent. The characters that include an accent,
(the composed form, as used in the unicode latin-1 set) are displayed OK.

Another problem is that if a character is separated from it's combining accent
by a combining grapheme joiner, the accent is put on the next, instead of on
the previous character.

Mind that it is not caused by the editor or environment setting, using the same
environment and same editor (vim), but a different terminal (gnome-terminal or
putty), the display is OK.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
Load the attached file utf8-acc.txt (I think I can only add a single
attachment, so it's in the zip file)

Actual Results:  
See attached sceenshots for konsole (broken), gnome terminal (mostly OK) and
Putty (mostly OK)
