I'm using an US-International Keyboard in MacOS.

The normal behavior for dead keys in every application is, for example, if I press the key sequence ', it understands that the comma doesn't carry an accent as would a vowel, so both the apostrophe and the comma get entered as in a normal US keyboard.

But in eclipse, the dead key sequence seems to eat the comma, which never appears. entering the comma (or any other character that doesn't take an accent) does terminate the dead key sequence, but doesn't get printed, so I have to terminate the quotes with a space and then enter the following character.

Is there a way to change this?
