I presume you also did `setopt PRINTEIGHTBIT` after applying that patch?

Is the symptom that the characters display as \M-a, or simply that they
lose the umlauts?  What's your `stty -a` output?

} Does anyone have an idea where to look?

With some grepping, I can't find any output of file names that doesn't
pass through the right functions, except fprintdir() which seems to always
output the raw string (so it can't be accidentally \M-ifying it).
