  The bug report is not publicly available, but it was about kate not removing composed characters, while other software do that. I now checked this with LibreOffice and QtCreator and it seems to remove composed character only when you use DELETE and not BACKSPACE. Not sure what is correct, but having this as an option seems to be a good idea.
