This means that you have some character in your buffer which is not
in Latin-9.  Emacs 20 used to show you the first character that
couldn't be encoded in the coding system, but Emacs 21.2 doesn't do
that anymore.  (Emacs 21.4 will do it again.)

You could search for unknown characters with something like

C-u C-s [^\000-\177äöü]

Instead of äöü you should put all the nonascii characters that you
normally use.
