      Description :
      ******

      Trying to create a new image, I wanted it to have i18ned characters.
      1 - I tried the compose key, and ? appeared instead. It is then impossible to
      delete those ?
      2 - I pressed Crtl-Space to switch my keyboard layout to the French one
      (Indiana's feature), but my keyboard layout was still in English in UC

      ******
      How to reproduce:
      ******
      0.Login in your solaris with a loaclized env, ex: French
      1.Start the updatetool in localized env.
      2.Press Crtl-n
      3.Use the compose key from Sun keyword to create a é -> see the ? appearing
      4.Press Ctrl-Space to switch your keyboard layout -> it still does not allow you
      to type multi-bytes characters.

        This is not under GUI's control and must be an issue in wx*.

        We will be documenting this as an issue for 2.0. Will look into
        addressing it in a future release.

        I can not reproduce this bug anymore.
        I tried on OpenSolaris b122.
        Compose key works. I am able to type é,à,ô,í,è,etc...
        Ctrl-Space functionality does not exist anymore on this build.

        I checked again, Ctrl-Space does not work anymore in OpenSolaris, but it has
        been replaced by the keyboard switcher functionality (see attached screenshot).
        Selecing French keyboard in the keyboard switcher, UC UI still considers the
        keyboard as an English one. It works for the other apps like Firefox or Thunderbird.
