The following minimal example used to compile in TeX Live 2014 as well
as an earlier TeX Live 2015 pretest installation:



I now get the following error:

! Undefined control sequence.
<argument> \xe at alloc@intercharclass

Is this expected?

I am on Ubuntu 15.04.

Please let me know if my log files would help (from TeX Live 2014 or
TeX Live 2015 early pretest or the most recent TeX Live pretest which
yields this error).
