Well, no reason to believe in miracles:  Today I experienced the bug
again an so I came up with a new receipt to reproduce it.  Its simpler
than the first try and it showed for me the bug reproducible:

1. emacs -Q

2. C-h H    ; to bring up the Hello file
            ; watch out for the German line: "Guten Tag, Grüß Gott"

3. M-x set-default-font RET terminus RET
            ; now the bug shows: the umlauts are gone the line looks
            ; like: "Guten Tag, Gr   Gott"

C-u C-x =  on the vanished `ß' shows:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
        character: ß (223, #o337, #xdf)
preferred charset: latin-iso8859-1 (Right-Hand Part of ISO/IEC 8859/1
(Latin-1): ISO-IR-100)
       code point: 0x5F
           syntax: w    which means: word
         category: h:Korean j:Japanese l:Latin
      buffer code: #xC3 #x9F
        file code: ESC #x2C #x41 #x5F (encoded by coding system
          display: by this font (glyph code)

Character code properties: customize what to show
  general-category: Ll (Letter, Lowercase)

There are text properties here:
  charset              latin-iso8859-1
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

(well of cause the `ß' in the output above is invisible, too).

Can you reproduce it this way?
Any new ideas?
