Windows: Impossible to use accents while typing OUTSIDE of Quod Libet #1168
I ran into this problem and don't know if it's GTK related, it seems very weird: when QuodLibet is running (on Windows 7, I didn't check if it happened on Linux) stroking accents keys in any application produce immediatly a double accent, instead of letting type the letter that should take the accent.
To get "ê" I normally type "^" and then "e", if I do so when QuodLibet is running I get: "^^e"

I've been running into this problem a lot, and didn't realize it was Quod Libet for several months. Welp, that's a few months of copy-pasting accented characters wasted.
Is there no way to actually fix this? An alternative to pyHook, or a fix to pyHook, perhaps? Anything? Anything at all?
If someone wants to test:
I've only tested with AutoHotkey emulating keys as I don't have multimedia keys on my keyboard.
Excellent @lazka. I just tested it.
As example: áëîò.
