I can not reproduce the problem, but I use another operating system
(Ubuntu 10.10) and an older LibreOffice (3.3.4), the LibreOffice
website version. Maybe this is a LibreOffice 3.5.4 problem? I would
try to install the most recent stable version, which seems to be 3.5.5
at the moment.
If you can't make it work, an obvious workaround would be to use the
Auto correction feature in LibreOffice. I think ”Straße” is already in
the list if you set the character language style to German. If not,
you can easily add it yourself in whatever language you want.
But really, it should work. I use Caps Lock for compose, just like
you, and it worked fine in LibreOffice Calc 3.3.4. I will install a
more recent version soon and try, I've just been lazy lately, or maybe
busy (I'm in the middle of my vacation right now)…
