The manual says: "Note that bibtexu is not actively supported by biblatex and has not been tested as backend in any way. Biber is the recommended backend."
What Philipp Lehman knows about it doesn't sound promising either:
"bibtexu seems to be quite buggy. I've given up pretty quickly."
So for TL 2011, better remove bibtexu and include Biber!
