Ah, ok.  This is Windows vs. Unix – I have `texmf-var' in the
`.texlive2013' directory.

Certainly, but this is a sub-optimal solution, I reckon.  Note that
older versions of luaotfload did *not* cause a problem; the problem
has been introduced recently

I know that, thanks.  But again, this is sub-optimal.  Contrary to the
issue with the Chinese fonts this should be rather easy to fix :-)
