Actually, that was me. How Arno confused an Australian member of the 
LaTeX team with a French plain TeX user is anybody's guess :)

The code isn't supposed to do anything meaningful except show a bug.
I've tried (not much) to tinker with formats, removing this from 
LuaLaTeX and adding that to plain TeX to try to spot what made the 
difference, but I had no success.
