I meant: 
It seems for some people the accented characters do work on their gtk2
system, for others it does not work. If you change it, it
might break on other systems. Maybe it depends on gtk2 version,
keyboard and window manager.
You have to test it on various gtk2 systems or ask people with other
systems to test.
