You have been subscribed to a public bug:

In small-sized fonts (font size <= 10) of the DejaVu Serif font, which
appears to be the standard font for serif fonts in Ubuntu Dapper, the
diaresis or trema is not centered above the respective character (a, u,
or o). Misplacing becomes especially apparent for capitalized umlauts
and o-umlauts in general.

For DejaVu Sans however, diareses are centered correctly. Umlauts are
also correctly centered if autohinter is chosen in fontconfig via "dpkg-
reconfigure fontconfig".
