Going over the tracker and noticed theres an old ms-windows bug with
dead-keys on international keyboards.

Harley Acheson submitted a fix which apparently works well, but for
some reason the patch remains uncommitted.

*bug* https://projects.blender.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=33678
*fix* https://projects.blender.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=33709

While this is an awkward quirk of the API theres a lot of info online
about this problem and the solution.

Heres the same issue reported and fixed for qt4 for example.

QT4 Had the same bug, their report and fix.
*bug* https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-33409
*fix* https://qt.gitorious.org/qt/qt/commit/68331c5436506b6f9b4c2a49692a09020e4eef27

Would an ms-windows developer be able to check on this patch for 2.69 release?
