[NTG-context] texutil "malformed UTF-8 character" error

I'm running the latest beta on top of a TeXlive 2003 install on linux. 
The job I'm currently running needs various tables of contents (and a 
set of bookmarks) but texutil (v. 8.2) seems to be choking on the .tui 
file at the very end of the run with this message:

  TeXUtil 8.2 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1992-2004

As you can see, as a result of the UTF-8 errors the .tui file isn't 
being successfully read, so I'm getting no register entries and hence no 
tables of contents ( or bookmarks).

I'm in the process of composing a minimal example file, but it's tough 
going and I wondered if anyone could point me in the right direction 
from the information in the error message.

I'd be really grateful! (Impossible deadlines approach...)

Thanks all.
