I have version 1.1.7 installed. All umlauts display ok with this version.

Don't know, this does not work yet.
IMO you should avoid using umlauts in filenames. This often
causes problems, not only concerning cygwin...

I created a file '.inputrc' in my home directory which contains
the following one line, beginning at row 1:

"\e[3~": delete-char

After restarting bash now, the [Del]-key works perfectly.

I found the [Del]-key stuff in the mail archives, for example.
