Angry How to disable compose key (Right Control) under GNOME?

OK. This is getting rather annoying. I am using SuSE 9.2 with GNOME. Now, the right CONTROL key is used as a "compose" key, which I suppose is needed for writing accents and non-Latin characters etc. I don't use that. Rather, the presence of "Compose" key interferes with my habit of using right CONTROL key to move faster with keyboard (Ctrl+arrow or Ctrl+Shift+arrow, and so on). How to disable this "Compose" functionality, or at least move it to some other key that I don't use so frequently as this precious key? I don't see it. Rather, under GNOME Control Center, in the "Keyboard" function, there are only settings that (seemingly) add the "Compose" capability to other keys (such as Menu key, Right Win key, or Right Alt key). Please help me SuSE users... (
