Only in OpenOffice.org-2.4, I'm having es_ES deadkey problems.

In my case, after typing the combination that contains a deadkey, the
correct resulting character used to appear for a fraction of a second,

All right, here are my SCIM settings. Put these lines in ~/.xinitrc:
before the command that starts your GUI. After that try experimenting
with various *_IM_MODULE values. Please note that you need QT_IM_MODULE
for KDE applications and that it's better to start SCIM manually than
to use XIM_PROGRAM="scim -d".
My editors/openoffice.org-3-devel is compiled with 'LOCALIZED_LANG=sr',
'WITHOUT_CUPS=yes', 'WITH_SYSTEM_FREETYPE=yes', 'WITH_SYSTEM_ICU=yes',
(However, since you use KDE/SKIM and maybe OpenOffice.org WITH_KDE, the
things might be a bit more complicated...)
Besides, if you share with me the actual keyboard file you use, it would
be the best way to investigate the problem further. What I wrote were
just generic ideas.
