Typing a dead key as trema or circumflex key on an AZERTY keyboard following with a letter does nothing in Arduino IDE.

Cut and paste of these letters from another window works fine.

This is used in comments.

Example : type ^ then e does not get ê. " then o does not get ö but nothing.

Releases of the IDE : 1.0.1 from Debian Linux, 1.0.3 from LANG=fr_FR@UTF8.
None of the others softwares in this machine have this issue.

Processing 1.5.1 works fine without this issue.

Is this still true with current hourly build? We changed underlying editor, so things might get better

Yes, this bug is fixed in nightly build. Thanks.
But a minor other issue with dead keys appears or is still here.

When I typed the Ê, the top of circumflex was hidden and the letter could be mistaken for Ë. Then , if I selected this letter Ê, all was displayed fine.

Does using a bigger font mitigate the issue? Can you attach a screenshot? (I can't reproduce the problem)
