I don't think it's a problem with the keyboard mapping, because when I switch
to a different font some of the characters display correctly (but often others
are screwed up in their place.  
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the ASCII (...or whatever) codes aren't wrong,
they're just being displayed incorrectly.  When I do a dumpkeys or edit one of the compose.latin*, it is the incorrect characters that appear
