[tex-live] inputenc incosistencies with UTF-8

I found that some characters don't fare well with bibtex, as I just
found out. One of my entries has the letter Ø (hopelly this won't get
mangled here); the norwegian capital "o" with a slash through the middle
of it. Bibtexing a *.tex source with this citation fails with the error:
ERROR: Package inputenc Error: Unicode char \u8:\303 not set up for use with LaTeX. 
I have "\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}" in my preamble, as I've always had
without problems. Other similar characters don't produce the error; in
fact, the lowercase version of the character above goes through
fine. The LaTeX documents compile fine if the Ø is included directly,
and neither are any problems encountered if the character is placed
directly in the *.bbl file. I'm using the texlive packages from Debian
sid. Any advice appreciated.
