Doing a Latin-1 to UTF-8 conversion on the mysqldump directly will
likely make any MARC records that are touched unparseable.  I suggest
as part of your process that you export the MARC bib and authority
records separately, fix them using MARC::Record and the techniques
you've already identified, then import them back into your 2.2.9 test
database.  Then you can fix a mysqldump of the non-MARC tables.
