Thanks for testing, Ulrike.

Which makes me think: with TeX Live, the system-wide format should be
regenerated automatically, but you may have a user-specific format, for some reason.

I recommend that you either delete ~/.texlive2010/texmf-var/web2c if it exists,
or rerun fmtutil --byengine luatex. (Unless you know why you need to have a
user-specific format, the first option is the way to go.)

For texlive, check that hyphen-greek is installed.
