Bug#623039: incompatible with utf8x inputenc

Package: biblatex
Version: 1.4a-1
Severity: grave
Tags: sid

I'm working on my master thesis, and today it suddenly broke, i.e. it didn't
compile anymore.

After a bit of investigation, I found biblatex to be the culprit. It seems like
something very bad happens when


is in the document preamble.

Using another encoding (even utf8) makes it work again. However, I *really*
need utf8x (to type characters like Ā, ø, and so on), so that's not a solution
to me.

I'm attaching a minimum (un-)compilable example, just switch between utf8x and
utf8 to see the problem:

    ! Package biblatex Error: Incompatible package 'ucs'.

I've set the bug severity to RC, since this is a bad regression and shouldn't
go into testing without being fixed IMHO.

Thanks for all your hard work maintaining the TeX ecosystem in Debian!
