Bugs with German umlauts in file name

I can confirm general display problems with umlauts in file names (see also screenshot) in current 22 builds (Carbon). Incidentally: does Emacs still crash when started from a path name that contains anything but 7-bit ASCII characters?

Emacs also brings up an annoying question about encoding when automatically saving 'places' at the end of the session.

Subject: [Aquamacs-bugs] Bugs with German umlauts in file name


Aquamacs (or Emacs in general) has problems with dealing with German
umlauts in file names. The inline file browser (C-x C-f) has problems
in displaying the German umlauts and accepting the umlaut itself ...
typing e.g. ü and <tab> won't autocomplete the filename ... u and
<tab> does ...

The umlaut problem also leads to LaTeX compile errors when invoking
with AUCTeX:

Emacs is finally in version 22 ... but why can't it still handle
umlauts in file names??

Maybe you can fix this. Thank you,
