Thanks for the insight. Would the best advice then, for MikTeX users 
be....'don't update anything having to do with lua*'? (Whch as of this 
morning has become a personal memo to self - I've even put a post-it 
note above my monitor to remind me).

Perhaps someone on the dev side of things for lua* should email 
Christian, and let me know (although it is easy enough to broadcast a 
general warning on various discussion boards, it might be better to 
contact the maintainer of MikTeX in the first place).
