Hi Bram,
  forwarded bug from the debian BTS. I just checked it with the latest
vim 6.3 release and it is still reproducible. Full text follows.


> Package: vim
> Version: 1:6.2-098+4
> Severity: normal
> I have $GTK_IM_MODULE=3Dxim in my environment, because I use a customized
> Xlib compose sequence file for entering Lithuanian letters by using a
> dead key.
> Alt modifier is ignored completely in vim 6.2 Gtk2 GUI.  In previous
> versions of vim (6.0), hitting Alt+letter where a letter was a menu
> shortcut would open that menu item, the rest of them would insert that
> letter with the high bit set.  In current version Alt always inserts
> that letter without any bit twiddlings or menu shortcuts, and any
> mappings for <A-letter> are ignored.
> I do have 'winaltkeys' set to 'menu', changing it does not seem to have
> any effect.  (Actually, it does: menu shortcuts are underlined when
> winaltkeys is set to 'yes' or 'menu', and not underlined when it it set
> to 'no', but in all cases actually hitting the Alt key has no effect.)
> The Alt key works as expected with GTK_IM_MODULE set to an empty string
> (but then Gtk uses its own compose sequences and I can no longer type
> text in my native tongue).
