xkb and greek


I have the following xkb-related info in /etc/X11/XF86Config:

    Option   "XkbRules"    "xfree86"
    Option   "XkbModel"    "pc101"
    Option   "XkbLayout"   "us,ru,el"
    Option   "XkbOptions"  "grp:caps_toggle,grp_led:caps"

Problem is, I can switch to Greek and type all of the lower and upper case letters, but not those with accents. I figure, addition of accents is done by typing two keys -- either ";" or ":" followed by the desired letter. It works so on WinXP... but in my system it has no effect. After pressing one of the two keys, there is no input, and when I then type a letter, it's just a normal one, unchanged.

In Mozilla, typing alpha would produce alpha, and typing ;alpha would produce the same alpha. In simicq (qt toolkit), no input would appear at all in the ";" case.
