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.
