The problem is that there are many characters in Emacs that look like
ö: one from Latin-1, one from Latin-2, one from Latin-9, and probably
others.  Emacs considers them all to be different.

Now, let's say the kbd sends a Latin-9 ö to Emacs, but the file
contains a Latin-1 ö.

You might open the .emacs file with C-x C-f and hit C-u C-x = on the ö
character.  Then you might wish to type ö into a buffer and also hit
C-u C-x = on it.  (Please do not use C-x =, use C-u C-x =.)  Then you
know whether it's the same ö, or whether they just look the same.

What happens if you write (kbd "M-ö") instead of [?\M-ö]?
