And another one posted today on de.comp.text.tex (without replies so 
far).  This time, there's no font switching, but non-letters are involved.

In the attached example, the word 'Deutschland' is hyphenated before the 
last letter when wrapped-up in guillemots.  For German patterns 
\righthyphenmin is 2, but that shouldn't include guillemots. 
Hyphenation is correct when there are German quotes or no quotes at all. 
  The error happens with or without fontspec.
