Probably some font misconfiguration problem. Apparently displaying of

I'm afraid that correct input of Chinese and any multibyte characters
will require almost complete rewrite of the Wine keyboard code using
X Input Method/Input Context. Simultaneously it will solve the problem
with dead keys.
Unfortunately nobody worked on that problems yet. Do you want to try?
