I was able to compile the thing without crashing. Sadly, after setting the proper file permissions, installing it to /usr/local/texlive/2012/bin/x86_64-darwin, and re-running fmtutil and fmtutil-sys, I get the exact same problem as reported above when I try to compile my tex file.

you cannot run the latest version with the current LuaLaTeX packages.
Only luatex can be used, but not lualatex.

Move back to version 0.72. I dont't know when and if the package
author will update their packages.
