Keyboard strangeness in Gnome

I´m running Feisty, and despite installing 7.04 with an Ubuntu disk have
otherwise been using KDE pretty much exclusively.
Today I booted into Gnome, and made the necessary adjustment in
Preferences > Keyboard for my current layout -- Generic 105-key (Intl)
PC/United Kingdom International (with dead keys).
However, I now find that apparently without any additional adjustments,
the Tilda and Circumflex keys need to be pressed twice to register their
character. Likewise the Single and Double-quote keys, which instead
register a slanted single-quote mark and an umlaut respectively.
Presumably this is part of a system to facilitate accented characters,
but how do I turn it off ;) ?
