I would start by remembering when was the last time the compose window
worked, and looking at update log (Suse's zypper should have a rather
neat log of what was updated and when, IIRC). Probably some package got
updated to a version that doesn't play well with the program.

Does this problem persist after you exit Claws Mail and start it again?
If so, is there any text output when you run it in a terminal and try
to use the compose window?

I doubt we'll see anything interesting in the --debug output, this
seems to be a problem somewhere on lower level, between the X server
and GTK.
