Hi all,

I just updated my TeXLive 2012 via tlmgr and also upgraded LuaTeX to 
0.74.0 via TLContrib. A minimal example works, but invoking fontspec 
leads to an error caused by oberdiek.luatex.lua. Downgrading to 0.70.2 
again work fine, so – was there an incompatible change in LuaTeX or is 
this a bug?
I have no idea what's going on in that file – the error is thrown in 
line 55 which reads:

table.insert(package.loaders, kpse_module_loader)

So, if anybody has an idea how to solve this, I'd be very happy :)
