T1 encoding and font subsetting dont mix in dvips (?)

It seems that I've stumbled on a bug with font subsetting in dvips...

If one removes the ``\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}'', the problem mysteriously
goes away, as it does if one uses ``dvips -j0'' to disable font subsetting.

I've tried vainly to track the problem down, but alas no luck, since
`/idieresis' plainly is in 8r.enc.

Any idea of a fix would be greatly appreciated, source patches especially.
