It is because xfig calls fig2dev with the -j option. If fig2dev is called from
the command line without the -j option it works fine. If it is called from the
command line with the -j option, the same bug appears.

The bug only appears when I use the special Danish characters f, x and e in a
document. This probably goes for other languages' special characters, too. If I
use only US characters the bug does not happen.

en_US is your lang variable. If you unset $LANG, it will ask for the file C.ps
