      Yep, two combining marks are enough for me.

      "unicode encoding:
      set enc=utf-8

      "set gui font
      set guifont=DejaVu_Sans_Mono:h11:cDEFAULT

      set nocompatible
      source $VIMRUNTIME/vimrc_example.vim

      I explored the problem further. There is something wrong with gvim
      interpreting deadkeys of the Windows-Keyboard layout. I could not type
      "n" with combined circumflex because I tried to map the combining
      circumflex on a dead key of my windows keyboard layout. When I map the
      combining circumflex to another key it works and it gets displayed
      well in gvim.

      I will explore the problems of remapping the dead keys of the windows
      keyboard layout later. So far I could not google anything about this
      issue in gvim in Windows.
