Have you tried regenerating the format file ? For trunk, that often
matters, because the version number detection does not always work

Other than that, the only advise I can give is to run a debugging
build of luatex via the C debugger to check where it crashes.
(For that, you need to build a binary with ./build.sh --nostrip )

Best wishes,
