Hans, this remind me, how to print above characters with your font 
loader? In pdftex it is done by:



  \uv{text in czech quotes}
  \qq{text in english quotes}

In czech and slovak text is used different style of quoting and CSFonts 
are prepared for it. Right czech quote is very similar to left english 
quote and for these reasons lot of fonts have only one glyph for both 
right czech and left english (under name quotedblleft).

But CSFonts differs between two characters and have two very similar 
(but slightly different) glyphs. Left english quote is under name 
quotedblleft and right czech under csquotedblright.

Glyph name csquotedblright is custom non-standard and so it is not in 
any glyphtounicode mapping list. There is also no special Unicode 
character for it and U+201C should be used.

Now I'm thinking that luatex must have problem if there are two 
characters which needs to be mapped to U+201C...

But it should be enough if user is able to define own macro \uv to works 
correctly (no need to type unicoded quotes in input tex file). How to do 

Also I think that your font loader could have problems with glyph name 
"csquotedblright" as it is not any standard one...
