It seems that the problem is even worse:

$ luatex -ini  -jobname=luatex -progname=luatex
This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.77.0-2013051114 (rev 4635)  (INITEX)
! I can't find file `/home/ismo/.texlive/2013/texmf-dist/tex/plain/config/luatex
<*> ...ve/2013/texmf-dist/tex/plain/config/luatex.ini

Please type another input file name:

Giving LuaTeX an absolute path is not helping.

I also tried

$ touch a.tex
$ luatex -ini a.tex

It also does not find the file a.tex.
