Hi Rembrandt,

first off, please always include at least the output of
luaotfload-tool -V in reports to bugs related to Luaotfload.

As to the long duration of the index reload, Luaotfload now
supports suppressing the reloads via config file options. Save

        update-live = true

to a file luaotfload.conf either in the working directory or one
of the other locations specified in the man page
luaotfload.conf(5). After that, running a TeX job won’t
accidentally trigger a database update any longer.

I have never encountered that font either. Something is trying to
load it though, but it definitely isn’t Luaotfload. Maybe another
package tries to pull it in? Hard to say without an MWE.

Best regards,
