A less confusing error message might be in order.  Perhaps
somthing more like:
"bytes here are invalid for the UTF-8 character encoding"
possibly followed by information on how to fix the problem.

It might also be nice to change the error to a warning within
comments, and suppress warnings/errors after the first one
if we don't already do so.
