You are copying the value of f.type into u.type before returning
the table (in the the for loop) so the font is never registered
as 'virtual' and consequently luatex tries to do vf resolving
on its own. But because you have already reencoded the base font,
the values in the vf no longer make sense.

This is harmless for the 'type', but bad for 'encodingbytes'.
You should move

to the end of the tounicode function
