Summary0000506: Umlauts (äöü) are missing in the output

Der Umlauts äüö are displayed as small rectangles in the output.
This happens with most of the fonts I tried, although not with all fonts.

Apart form that, some fonts are not found with version 1.16,
but in 1.12 they work fine.
These problems might be related.

Earlier reports about missing umlauts are 56 and 505, which are both listed as 'fixed'.
Steps To Reproduce

digraph Datenanalyse {
    node[ shape = box
        fontsize = 11
        fontname = "tahoma"

    auml[ label = "Umlauts like ä," ]
    ouml[ label = "ö and" ]
    uuml[ label = "ü aren't displayed." ]

    auml -> ouml -> uuml -> auml

Additional Information
With 1.12 which I used until an hour ago (and to which I'll revert) this doesn't happen.

[erg] The problem occurs on Linux as well. If I set
fontname=/usr/common/graphviz/lib/fonts/ttf/arial.ttf and use 1.16, I get
boxes, not umlauts. If I use /usr/common/graphviz-1.12/bin/dot with the
same input, the input is correct. The same thing happens with times.
However, if we let fontconfig do its thing, as happens in the test suite,
the results are okay.
TagsNo tags attached.
