[luatex] latest 'fixes' don't fix....again.

So, I waited until this morning to try updating my MikTeX 2.9 system 
(one of them, at least). Various updates dated May 8 (couple of days 
after I'd reported some problems, which were purpotedly related to 
corrupt lualibs).

Now, a simple MWE don't compile, with errors stating that the font db 
can't be found.  Here is the log (or, relevant bits) from a compile of 
nothing more than the following:


    \setmathfont{XITS 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.



Here are the relevant bits of the error log.

For possible explanations start the command from the Command Prompt...

So, when I tried mkluatexfontdb from a cmd prompt, it tells me the 
script isn't found (which is odd, since I used it last night - before 
the updates).
