    kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+0/600 --dpi
    600 GFSBodoniBoldIt.otf

Sounds like test-utf8.tex contains
\font\foo = GFSBodoniBoldIt.otf

Is that right?  That syntax has never worked.  To get XeTeX to look up
an .otf by file name, it's always been necessary to use brackets, most
likely with quotes:
  \font\foo = "[GFSBodoniBoldIt.otf]" \foo XYZ
I just tried it with xetex from tl14 on i386-linux; it worked.
FWIW, the xetexref manual has a variety of examples (although personally
I think it could use still more :).

After your initial mail, I submitted an enhancement request for xetex to
pay attention to the .otf extension instead of blindly stripping it off
and looking for a .tfm anyway:
but that is new functionality not yet implemented.

    (That's what started the discussion: Someone tried to use mathdesign
    with xelatex which loads fonts in this way and this fails).

Sounds like a bug in mathdesign, then.
