Thanks for your detailed help, Rodrigo.

For the record, I could "fix" it by just installing gtk2-immodules
using yum and rebooting. As my ~/.bash_profile was containing:
  export GTK_IM_MODULE=cedilla
(as it worked in F10 before my upgrade to F11), and it worked.
I didn't need to do anything more. Since it's working fine I think I
won't follow all the steps you described in your previous email, unless
I want cedilla as default for every xorg user, I presume.

My other problem is still there.. my keyboard repeat delay and rate
settings are not taken into account after a graphical login, unless I
open the keyboard properties dialog and click close. The correct
settings are shown in gconf-editor and modifying values in gconf-editor
does apply immediately. Any idea?
