If I've got a XML document that includes e.g. an &nbsp; UTF-8 encoded,
and i tidy it up with -xml I get the HTML entity &nbsp; instead of the
korrekt UTF-8 sequence. The XML document isn't wellformed any longer and
therefore unusable. Using the -utf8 command line argument doesn't change
this behaivour.

Tidy must include something like

<!DOCTYPE html [
  <!ENTITY nbsp "&#160;">

or use UTF-8 encoding or numeric character references when in XML mode.
