[Vm-dev] Strange unix (Pi) vm event bug for july 2016 era vm build

I can stop the errant key event problem by removing a single line from my /usr/bin/squeak script. 

We have a small section that exports a couple of values
if [ -z $LC_ALL ]; then
export LC_ALL=$LANG

If I comment out the first export there is no problem. 

I *think* that means that the problem is in the x2sqKeyInput() function which seems to get substituted for x2sqKeyPlain() if getenv(“LC_ALL”) is true. I was pretty much expecting to see that it was the x2sqKeyCompositionInput() causing the problem since it is the newer bit of code directly associated with the changes.
