fix buffer overflow when handling long composed input

To reproduce the issue:

If you already have the multi-key enabled on your system, then add this line
to your ~/.XCompose file:

<question> <T> <E> <S> <T> <question> :

Reported by and an initial patch by Andy Gozas <>, thanks!

Adapted the patch, for now st (like dmenu) handles a fixed amount of composed
characters, or otherwise ignores it. This is done for simplicity sake.

st - simple terminal
st is a simple terminal emulator for X which sucks less.

In order to build st you need the Xlib header files.

Edit to match your local setup (st is installed into
the /usr/local namespace by default).

Afterwards enter the following command to build and install st (if
necessary as root):

    make clean install

Running st
If you did not install st with make clean install, you must compile
the st terminfo entry with the following command:

    tic -sx

See the man page for additional details.
