Sorry, I didn't pay enough attention. I thought it was the usual error
(forgetting to reassign to a list's head being quite common).
doesn't mean anything, it should be:
n1.next = box.head
n1.next = node.copy_list(box.head)
Otherwise LuaTeX will be stuck in a loop (I have no time to investigate
why, but it does so).
