It seems that since upgrading to NetBSD 5, this resource setting
actually stops my compose key from working. (I try to avoid locale and
UTF-8 stuff, but for some reason I have LC_CTYPE=nl_NL.ISO8859-1 set)
After doing an "echo 'xterm*openIm: true' | xrdb -override", a newly
started xterm had a working compose key again. So I removed the
corresponding line from my .Xresources.

(I'm glad I finally found out what the cause was, it has been bothering
me somewhat for months)
