What do you get if you say

same thing. I mark this text in mozilla:

Minuten köcheln lassen. Diese Soße sollte weder zu dick noch zu dünn sein

and I get this in emacs:

Minuten k\x{00F6}cheln lassen. Diese So\x{00DF}e sollte weder zu dick noch zu d\x{00FC}nn sein

and the control sequences aren't one character, they are in the buffer as literal (e.g.) "\x{00F6}" consisting of the 8 ascii characters you see.

Also, if you can find some tool that will show you the contents of the
X selection buffer after you cut/copy from a gtk2 application, please
tell what does that tool show.  Perhaps by looking at the contents of
the selection buffer we will be able to guess what kind of encoding is

I'll try to find one.

I'm also slightly confused by the fact that someone told in this
thread they have no problems pasting from Mozilla.

It works properly for german language stuff if I log in setting the session language to german (who knows what gnome does with the gtk2 pango stuff in this case), but then it doesn't copy other lanquages properly. It also doesn't work if i set LC_ALL to any type of german or utf locale in a terminal window and then start emacs, though I can verify that this has an effect since it changes the default encoding for saving a buffer.

  Could it be
something in the setup of your system?  Does it help to invoke Emacs
with "emacs -q --no-site-file"?

No. same thing.
