It turns out that the problem was being caused by this call from .emacs:

  (current-language-environment "German")

which appears to make Emacs prefer latin-1.

I wasn't sure if this should be considered an actual problem, or just a
configuration error, so I thought I should forward it.

Please see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=3D611396 for
further details.
