I can confirm this behaviour also with Swedish keyboard


Acute accent + c  prints ç in 12.04.3 but ć in 13.10
Acute accent + e  prints é in 12.04.3 and 13.10

When I log in from a Lubuntu 13.10 client via ssh to a Xubuntu 12.04.3
ssh server, I get the 13.10 behaviour, so it seems connected to the
keyboard setting rather than interpreting the ascii code.

So please file a bug report and post the bug number. I will add 'affects
me too'.

Best regards
