Ahhh ... thanks Akira! That's the missing link :-)
So turns out the new fmt file was created in some hidden folder in my home 
directory, while xelatex was still using the original (non-german) one. This 
weird discrepancy showed up calling this:

$ kpsewhere -engine=xetex xelatex.fmt	// where the old ones are
$ kpsewhere -engine=xelatex xelatex.fmt	// where the new ones ended up

Don't ask me why xetex and xelatex look for files in totally different folders 
(is this yet another fmtutil vs. fmtutil-sys thing? the latter doesn't work 
right on my system), but I'm happy now.

Thanks for your help, guys!
