At the Univ, I pulled the latest TexLive dvd image off the local mirror
onto my USB disk, took it home, ran install-tl.

When I run the same test, it works.  My output starts

> This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.70.2-2012062812 (TeX Live 2012)

This seems to show that despite your later build date, you started
from older source.  Which may just explain why mine works
and yours doesn't.
