I found the issue, and it is not emacs. As a mea culpa, here is the
source of the bug.

A long time ago, I experimented with system level key bindings for Cocoa
applications (I'm using OS X, see
for a recent description of such bindings). In my configuration file,
I had this:

  "~o" = (moveToEndOfParagraph:, insertNewline:);

which means "when Alt and o are pressed together, insert a line after
the current paragraph". And the letter I wanted to input (œ) was done so
using Alt and o. The system intercepted this key combination, and
replaced it with a sequence of events that resulted in C-@ being
received by emacs.

Sorry for the noise,
