Please use story.tex for your tests, texbook.tex is not meant to be compiled (or
don't say it on public mailing lists).

The core problem is, luatex doesn't handle \jobname in the same way as pdftex
when in contains spaces. This is apparent with LaTeX since it tries to \input
\jobname.aux at begin document.

I seem to remember this was already discussed on the luatex list, I'll look into
the archives. In the meanwhile, I recommend that you just don't use spaces in
file names with LaTeX.
