looks like I've exchanged old and new file again in my patch, sorry :-)

yes I agree. Since emacs looks at every single event, there must be a way to
tell emacs to ignore these events until the key is complete. I couldn't find
a better way.

are you sure, this would amaze me? I thought when chars_matched is 3, emacs
needs to handle the char, and as long as we're composing a character, we need
to ignore it.

I don't know when/how these 3 events that compose one char need to be

and the "i" is lower case.              -- Sydney J. Harris
