Ah, yes.  Thanks, much!!  I was running in circles with iconv, messing about 

$ echo -n geländerxx | iconv -t iso-8859-1 >> w

$ john --session=h --wordlist=w --format=raw-md5 h
Loaded 1 password hash (Raw MD5 [128/128 SSE2 intrinsics 8x])
gel�nderxx       (45)
guesses: 1  time: 0:00:00:00 DONE (Mon Nov  5 15:14:32 2012)  c/s: 300  trying: geländerxx - gel�nderxx
Use the "--show" option to display all of the cracked passwords reliably
$ john --show --format=raw-md5 h  
1 password hash cracked, 0 left
