I've remapped Caps-lock to be Mode_switch using this .Xmodmap:

keycode 66 = Mode_switch
clear Lock

Furthermore, I'm generating umlauts using this key, .Xmodmap looks like this:
keycode 30 = u U udiaeresis Udiaeresis
keycode 32 = o O odiaeresis Odiaeresis
keycode 38 = a A adiaeresis Adiaeresis

The problem is: Whenever I press Mode_switch, I have to wait 2 seconds until 
the key press gets processed (I don't know exactly where it hangs, but xev 
shows the event about two seconds later and the character gets inserted then 
into urxvt/firefox).

Probably this has something to do with the xterm/inputmethod-thing of which one 
can read on the mailing list.

I'm using the following settings in .xsession before starting my window manager 
(wmii-3.6 from pkgsrc):
export LC_CTYPE=de_DE.UTF-8
export LC_COLLATE=de_DE.UTF-8
export LC_TIME=de_DE.UTF-8
export LC_NUMERIC=de_DE.UTF-8
export LC_MONETARY=de_DE.UTF-8
export LC_PAPER=de_DE.UTF-8
export LC_NAME=de_DE.UTF-8
export LC_ADDRESS=de_DE.UTF-8

I'm not sure ? Perl complains aswell when starting it, but locale -a says that 
de_DE.UTF-8 is available.
Open a terminal/firefox/whatever.

Press AltGr (=Mode_switch) + a after activating an Xmodmap like the above.
