This creates a problem for functions like wrapping selected text (with parens or braces) because rather than wrapping the text with the appropriate character it replaces the selection with the dead key character.

Normally a dead-key adds a diacritics and the following key (letter) will be composed on-top of that diacritics mark.

Your use of dead keys seems more like multi-stroke key bindings. How did you set this up? How do you type a single semi-colon?

If you do setup e.g. semi-colon + J to insert a left-parent (via multi-stroke key bindings) TextMate should wrap the selection.
