After all of the issues the Gentryii gave me, it feels ironic that my last and most stubborn room of the level contains but a pair of Aumtlich. (Aumtlichen?) I can't seem to figure out a way to get both of them to the bottom switches.

I suspect that I'm handling my second Aumtlich poorly, or that I haven't chosen a good spot to keep it. If I keep both of them frozen with the mirror, the wraith can't unfreeze both of them as I try to break into the southern room.

Have I made one too many assumptions, or do I just need a refresher in Aumtlich manipulation? Thanks in advance.

There is a flawed assumption:

I've managed to break my flawed assumption, though I find myself trapped in the southern room each time because the my Aumtlich get caught in corners. Where is a good position for the second Aumtlich? I can't see how to manage Tempestadept's technique in time.

I'm almost there but need the decisive nudge.

I have the mirror at (20,4), one Aumtlich at (26,4) and the other one at (24,8). I figure I should be getting down to (27,13) with my sword pointed West.
If this is all correct, where does the wraithwing go? If this is not, what do I need to change?

It does free out the first Aumtlich and allows me to reach the southern room, but leaves the second one blocked.
I'd be happy with another arrangement of enemies, mind you :)

I got it from this arrangement.

I've managed what appears to be a plausible arrangement (screenshot attached).

That's exactly the arrangement I had :P It's possible from there by driving the wraithwing through the horizontal aumtlich's beam, then getting the aumtlich frozen again. This can be done without him ever moving from his spot!

looking at nuntar reply, Ive similar arrangement I can get wraithwing to break horizontal beam, but can seem to re freeze him, If I use wraithwing to break vertical beam can get autlich on one lower pressure plate but can;t get wriath to go to second.

From the position in your screenshot, I would put the 2nd aumtlich on the diagonal facing NE towards the mirror. It doesn't really matter where, so long as it isn't right up against the mirror.

Then put the wraithwing just North of the mirror without breaking either aumtlich beam. The room should play out from there fairly easily.

If you're entirely stumped, a few hints might help. I included a demo anyway though in case you just want to move on. This room requires some tricky aumtlich and wraithwing manipulation and is a bit trickier than the rest of the level.
