Sounds like: http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=193922
(But why does that affect the US layout? The us layout should have the right 
alt set to <RALT>, which has compose enabled. Are you using us_intl with the 
nodeadkeys option? Because I guess if you used us_intl with dead keys on, you 
wouldn't ask this question.)
The patch can be applied to the installed 
file /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/level3 (only modifiable by root, of course).

The alternative is the us_intl layout with dead keys on, which makes the quote 
work as a dead key, so "o gives you รถ. (Press quote and space to get a quote.) 
You may find that annoying long term though.
