Don't ask me - it is you who has written the patch with
unicode-letters. It may be that XeTeX needs some magic and proper
catcodes/lccodes before loading latex.ltx and/or other macros.

I'm CC-ing Jonathan. Maybe he can explain you better why lccodes are
set twice in xelatex - before and after loading latex.ltx. You can
probably move unicode-letters for lualatex to the end of lualatex.ini
without any consequences. You just need to make sure that you not only
set the codes for letters, but also unset them for non-letters in the
"80-"FF range.
