unfortunately this is an old and known issue (since Emacs 20 at least), and
I for myself have several "hacks" in my .emacs to work around it.

First:

(defun mihi-insert-keycode () 
  (interactive)
  (insert (format "%S" (read-key-sequence ""))))

This enables me to run M-x mihi-insert-keycode, press a key and have the
keycode in the current buffer. Then I have a cond block that defines keys
depending on system-configuration and/or window-system, like this:

(cond
 ((eq system-configuration 'windows-nt)
  (global-set-key [342387] "»")  ; C-ö
  (global-set-key [342398] "«")) ; C-ä
 ;; other configurations I use are here
)

Most likely this issue will vanish with Emacs 23, because that one will use
Unicode internally, so there won't be more than one codepoint for the same
character any longer.
