The new babel redefines the \TeX command and surrounds it by
\textlatin and this reveals a bug:
\fontdimen1 is wrong with lualatex (it is 0pt) and now the tests for
italic correction fails as latex doesn't realize that a slanted font
is involved:




 \the\fontdimen1\font %0pt with lualatex, 0.25pt with xelatex



{\itshape \fontdimen1\font=0.25pt
