[luatex] luaotfload problems on windows (TL + Miktex)

With the latest version from GitHub (2.3a) I can also compile Ulrike's 
test document on the fly after deleting luatex-cache in both TeX Live 
2013 and MiKTeX 64-bit (both up to date). However...

Ulrike, when you run luaotfload-tool --help under MiKTeX and under TeX 
Live, do you get the same output?

With the latest luaotfload update from GitHub, I still don't (the MiKTeX 
version prints the old help message of cca. 20 lines, the TeX Live 
version prints cca. 60 lines, ending with "The font cache will be 
written to..."). This is with the 64-bit MiKTeX, by the way.

In both distributions the new help message is issued when one does 
texlua /path/to/luaotfload-tool.lua --help.

Philipp, I get the same result as Ulrike, with both distributions.
