That's weird. I also have 1.3.9 from the repositories on Fedora 14
x86_64, and the Compose key does not work in either environment. But
Ctrl-Shift-u + Unicode number works in both places. However, I do not
have a Brazilian keyboard enabled.

Still, a strange collection of varying results. 

I don't generally need special characters in Scribus because I create
all my text in OOo. And hopefully the release of 1.4.0 will resolve all
issues and bring world peace.
