After upgrading to emacs 24 I have strange problems with copy and paste. I managed to reinstall copy and paste with the mouse but there remains the problem with German diacritic characters. If I copy an Umalut äöü and insert it using the mouse (middle button) I get unicode stuff that cannot be saved \344\366 and so on. Is there a way to fix this?
Probably not related to a certain version: Emacs needs some info WRT coding-system. Fails sometimes with some known OS. Check setting of
coding-system-for-read. Sometimes copy-and-paste into another buffer helps.
