I am using a Debian Linux system at home and for a while I have been
struggling with a major annoyance. Namely, when writing any Finnish text
(or Swedish text for that matter), I am in need to produce the letter
'ä'. However, when I press the key 'ä' what appears on my GNU-Emacs
screen running in an X-window is 'ae'. Now this sounds to me like
mapping non-US characters to US replacements. But at the same time the
rest of the scandinavian alphabets are produced properly, i.e. I get
'åöÅÄÖ' properly to the screen. Only the lower case 'ä' is behaving in a
strange way.

Does the same happen when you launch GNU Emacs with -Q or -q, i.e., without any or without your own customisation? If not, then you are introducing the observed failures (as left-over from non-Unicode GNU Emacs 22.x, for example).
