I solved using:


and XeLaTeX instead of PDFLaTeX (without fontspec, it compiled but the
extended UTF characters were missing from the output pdf).

This should at least be documented in NEWS.Debian, since it's a big change from
the version in testing.

(still, I think XeLaTex is not mature enough to force people into using it when
having to use biblatex + extended UTF fonts.)
