Yes, it works fine with other Linux distributions, but not with Fedora Core 3. I have tried with Mandrake 10.1 and it has worked fine, but with Fedora Core 3 it do not work correctly.

There was a similar issue on thy LyX mailing list. They tracked it down to Qt's input method (immodule)
Apparently Fedora ships an incompatible one.

Yes, it happens with another KDE programs e.g. Koffice. I have updated qt to 3.3.4 version (with iiimf support) and bug has changed. Now when I press ' and a, I do not see nothing. It's a qt bug? Or is an important update issue to take in mind for all the qt programmers?

I would file a bug in and reference this bug as well. We can confirm it works on three other distros with Qt 3.3.3+
