I have created an additional list of key combinations for my Compose Key using the method shown at How can I add a custom compose key sequence?. The first two lines of my file read

    include "%L"
    <Multi_key> <underscore> <B>    : "Ḇ" U1E06

And this is saved as ~/.XCompose. I have also added export GTK_IM_MODULE="xim" to my ~/.profile.

The problem is that not all of my old key sequences work, including simple things like <Multi_key> <e> <apostrophe>.

How can I enable the old key sequences alongside my new list?
