[luatex] recent lua* updates | MikTeX | broken again... ;-)

So, took my 'test machine' (Windows 7, MikteX 2.9), and tried out the 
latest Lua* updates (lots of updates - libs, binaries, many things...). 
And, said 'updates' completely breaks functioning system -- files not 
only don't compile, they yield nasty errors with words like 'fatal' in 
them. ;-)

Consider following simple MWE:


   \setmathfont{Asana Math}


Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Praesent in 
tincidunt nulla. Donec quis laoreet est. Aenean vitae est felis, a 
venenatis magna. Mauris semper bibendum vulputate. Etiam bibendum quam 
ut erat rutrum consequat.


Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Morbi eget 
dolor ac diam interdum volutpat. Cras luctus congue nibh, at dictum 
nulla iaculis quis.


  When I try to compile the file (from command line, or otherwise), I get

Command Line:   lualatex.exe --shell-escape "lua-mwe.tex"
Startup Folder: C:\Users\egc\Desktop\downloads\mwe files

This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.76.0-2013062419 (rev 4627)
  \write18 enabled.

(Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)
LuaLaTeX failed to create a pdf file.
For possible explanations start the command from the Command Prompt...

<fyi: trying from the command prompt yields the same message>.

So, now we'e back to figuring out which of the 6-8 'updates' (along, or 
together) is not playing nice....
