I never thought that I could help you, but playing around a bit
on the keyboard seemed to open up an interesting obervation:
- £ -
A working Pound sign!

Accidentally - because I never intended it - I have a
UK Pound sign: £
LC_ALL is set to en_US.ISO8859-1
Nothing changed, except stuff in xorg.conf that hasn't
something to do with fonts 'n stuff.
Editor GNotepad+ (port gnotepad+, run as gnp)
Keypress: Alt-Gr + Shift + 3
Shift + 3 -> §
Alt-Gr + 3 -> ³
Alt-Gr + Shift + 3 -> £
This is, as I mentioned before, obviously not intended. I'm
using german settings for the keyboard. Note that I don't use
-15 (instead of -1) so I don't have the Euro currency symbol
in gnp, but I have it in OpenOffice (Alt-Gr + E). Maybe it
works with -15, too.
Works in X-Terminal (standard xterm)
Works in Sylpheed (Gtk 2)
Works in GNotepad+ (Gtk 1)
Works in OpenOffice 3.0.0 M9/9358 (german version)
Maybe you want to try it.
Here are some Pound signs for copy & paste: £ £ £ £ £ £ £ £ £.
Use them wisely and in peace. :-)

I don't think it's a "problem", it's just a "strangely
appearing circumstance of misconfiguration". :-)
