I have adifferent behaviour between pdflatex and lualatex:

create any file _without an extension, eg foo, with contents bar :-)


running it with pdflatex it is ok, but with lualatex:

This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.70.2-2012052410 (TeX Live 2012)
  restricted \write18 enabled.
LaTeX2e <2011/06/27>

for engl
ish, dumylang, nohyphenation, loaded.

) (./test.aux)

! LaTeX Error: File `foo.tex' not found.

Type X to quit or <RETURN> to proceed,
or enter new name. (Default extension: tex)

Enter file name:


With any extension it is fine.
