If you don’t want to modify your LC_CTYPE in general (which is reasonable,
but then I’m not sure which applications respect LC_CTYPE for German case
rules--I can’t get Perl 5.8.8 to), add this to your ~/.xemacs/init.el :
(create-variant-language-environment "English" 'utf-8))

Unless your ~/.xemacs/init.el already handles what coding system file names
are in, you probably don’t want to remove the package. The change I made
that provoked the new behaviour on your machine added support for sniffing
what encoding file names were in, which should be beneficial for you.
When I was in the scouts, the leader told me to pitch a tent. I couldn't
find any pitch, so I used creosote.
