Do the usual compose sequences work if you remove the ~/.XCompose file?
Can you show us the content of that ~/.XCompose file?
Do your hand-made .XCompose sequences work in LibreOffice/Iceweasel/...?

IOW my crystal ball tells me that your .XCompose file is lacking
a `include "%L"' so it overrides the default rather than extends it.
And you don't notice it in Iceweasel because you haven't set the envvar
GTK_IM_MODULE=3Dxim, so those apps don't actually use your .XCompose
file anyway.

After running emacs under Debian mentioned above, fully updated,
general compose key shortcuts do not work. The only compose key
shorcuts that work in emacs under the described conditions are
those, that are defined in ~/.XCompose file (I defined three shortcuts
there, =E2=98=BA, =E2=86=92, =E2=86=90 to test what I say, and they work.=
 The shortcuts defined
in /usr/share/X11/locale/... do not work. Compose key works OK in other
X programs, such as Libre Office, Iceweasel, terminator. Eg. xterm seems
to have similar problem as emacs, but that might be due to its inept
font. I posted it on stackoverflow, and was told to send a bug report.
