The TeX output of dblatex can be stripped down to the attached example,
exposing a problem of the TeX listings package regarding utf8 encoding.
(The listings package gets used due to the DocBook <screen> element.)

% This example demonstrates problems of the listings package regarding utf8
%encoding: the output of a pdflatex run exposes swapped characters:
% Nicht ügengend Platz üfr »Dynamic «MMap
Nicht genügend Platz für »Dynamic MMap«
