This is the normal behaviour, otherwise there is something wrong in
your build -- or I have not understood  your problem.

Actually I have the following problems with my build
1) mkiv format is regenerated at every run -- it's not normal
2) if I don't have MinGW on my PATH, then luatex.exe  doesn't work

You can also show them on your wiki pages: just register at
A kind of psychedelic page

Anyway, yes, it's off topic here.
