Domain with special character redirect loop on homepage

i am experiencing a problem with wordpress starting with 4.5 i think.

Since this commit [1] i always get redirect loops on the home page. this issue seemed to be fixed, and i can confirm this on various wordpress instances.

But one instance has a domain with a special character ("ö" - german Umlaut), and the problem persists there.

Also i am not the only user who can confirm this issue [2].

Currently i have to reset the line [3] to the old value after every update since it gets overwritten. This is not a solution, only a very bad workaround.

Of course i already have tried to disable all plugins, themes etc. which could cause the issue. I can say, that the problem is not caused by the hoster since i have many wordpress instances running on the same hoster and no other does have this problem (and no other have a special character in the domain)
