Tried on Windows, 2.75 client and on same server. Õ, Ä, Ö and Ü seems to work and no crashes for me.

Status:
- the current implementation (combination of latest client and server) doesn’t crash
- german 'Umlaute’ are displayed when the chat is initiated via the chat window, console is still failing (chars are replaced by spaces) see #981


- ensure the current client doesn’t crash when connected to older server versions ( 2.75 & earlier)
