I entered Emacs version 21.1 with the -q option over a simple telnet.  I then
evaluate (in succession):

     (setq junk '(("Ê" . "\\^{E}") ("Ë" . "\\\"{E}")))
      --> (("Ê" . "\\^{E}") ("Ë" . "\\\"{E}"))

     (assoc "Ë" junk) --> ("Ë" . "\\\"{E}")

     (standard-display-european nil) --> [39]

     (assoc "Ë" junk) --> nil

     (standard-display-european t) --> [39]

     (assoc "Ë" junk) --> nil

     (assoc "Ë" junk) --> nil

Notice that the assoc worked the first time, but then fails.  Why would the 
workings of assoc (which has nothing to do with the display be affected?!!!
