Comment (by ttcoder):

For the record, looks like this was actually [http://cgit.haiku-
os.org/haiku/commit/?id=47b0d5f52a03b4d2602ab6bb72cb051428cf0d79 fixed] in
hrev49019, for which one can make a quite plausible scenario that fits the
observed behavior: one of the `delete[] string` prematurely frees the
character being typed after the dead key, which thus could randomly
(depending on heap layout) get clobbered by the string "be:inline_only" in
method _EnqueueInlineInputMethod().

Another one that was not detected by Coverity, but caught by the guarded
heap, go mmlr! 8-)
