Those "Umlauts" are 16 bits wide in utf-8:
$ echo -n üv|hex
0x00000000: c3 bc 76 - üv
$ LC_CTYPE=de_DE.utf-8 LC_COLLATE=de_DE.utf-8 ./a.out ü v
..so this was comparing a double-byte character with a single-byte
one. If I specify a wrong locale, glibc produces the expected results
for the invalid single-byte comparison:
$ LC_CTYPE=de_DE.iso-8859-1 LC_COLLATE=de_DE.iso-8859-1 ./a.out ü v
