Eterm doesn't like the international keyboard layout

I just switched to Enlightenment, and I love it, especially Eterm, but I am having one problem with it. Eterm doesn't seem to understand my keyboard layout. I use the US Internation Layout. For those of you unfamiliar with it, the international layout allows the user to more easily input characters like , , , and . It does this by using dead-keys. If I hit the " key, then nothing shows up until I hit the next button. If I type a, then it outputs , and if I type a space, it outputs ".
However, in Eterm, it will only print the second button I press, which not only means I don't get any international characters (which isn't a huge deal), but it also means I can't get " ' ^ or ~.
I've only noticed this behaviour in Eterm. It doesn't seem to be happening to any other programs.
Has anybody else seen this? Does anyone know how to fix it? It's really driving me crazy, but I don't want to have to go back to gnome-terminal, or konsole.
