In general i think that unicode is still work in progress in Emacs. The
Emacs homepage at http://www.gnu.org also says:
* Emacs 23, the next major release, will have improved Unicode support.
So i think currently we can't expect working support.

That may depend on how your terminal/console works with the umlauts.
There are also settings for readline (i think) that affect the
translation between 7 and 8 bit characters (or so...).
