Ticket #3256 (closed defect: fixed)
"dead keys" do not work any more -> fixed in SVN

On a SX:CE build 104 host, running VirtualBox 2.1.2, german layout usb keyboard: The accent key ( ' and ` -- to the left of the backspace key) does not work.
This key is sometimes quite important for Solaris' grub, which does not use localized keyboard keymaps and assumes an us-english keymap: on an us-english keyboard the ' / ` key corresponds to the = / + key. I can't edit the grub boot command line and add an option like "-B key=value" because there's no way to type the "=" key.
