I think the "Undefined control sequence" message comes for an active
character (that is, a byte with category code 13) which doesn't have a
definition. This would be hex c2. Does luatex change the category
codes of bytes 80-ff at all?

†, ‡ begin hex e2, that probably accounts for why they don't break.

You could try the attached file and send the log here to see if we can
find any enlightenment from it. It should have lines like

Â->@UTFviiiTwoOctets Â

@UTFviiiTwoOctets #1#2->@expandafter @UTFviiiDefined @csname u8:address@hidden 

(Â is hex c2 in Latin-1.)
