I tried that. The mp File contains now
histbarlabel_left("f\"& ditto &"acher\"& ditto &"ubergreifenden Bachelor");

and results in this in the .tmp file:
latexmp_picture[13]:= btex \textsize f\"acher\"ubergreifenden Bachelor etex ;

However in the eps file there are only spaces for the Umlaute as before.

The system is winxp with miktex.

What kind of information would be necessary to solve  this problem ?
