It works with the \u00FC representation, so this is another solution in 
addition to using (string-make-multibyte "ü"), probably very similar in effect.

However, here is an interesting observation: that insert statement is used in a 
site-lisp/site-start.el file. It produces the mentioned problem when Emacs is 
started. If, in contrast, Emacs is running and I do a load-file of 
site-start.el then, 

(insert "Umlaut: ü")

will work exactly as observed on recent versions of Emacs on MacOS and Linux.
