No idea about another patch. May be it was buit I do not remember
anything like this.

www.xn--mller-kva.at but see below.

Actually, I just discovered that patch has a error. It will convert
punycode domain name back to normal string only if that starts from
xn--. So, www.xn--whatever will not be converted back. But I made a
quick extension named "punycode" to get punycode support until it all
works in the core. This problem is solved there.
Now the question is: do we still need punycode support in the core? It
seems that only you and me care ;) If we do need it, I will make an
updated patch for core. If no, let it be in extension. Less fat in typo3
core this way.
