[luatex] What's wrong with LuaTeX v0.95.0?

I have been a lollipop user (http://ctan.org/pkg/lollipop) since 15 years
ago and its developer from April 2014. For the past 15 years, I have only
been using Knuth's TeX engine since that gives me all I want. If you try to
build the lollipop format for Knuth's TeX by:

tex -ini   -jobname=lollipop -progname=lollipop lollipop.ini

and process the following minimal example with lollipop format:


Let's say $x$ is a variable


You see no problem in the output. However, if you build the format by
using luatex v0.95.0 by

luatex -ini   -jobname=lollipop -progname=lollipop lollipop.ini

and process the same file, then the x in the inline math mode
disappears. Should not luatex at least behave like Knuth's TeX engine?
Does anyone know what is wrong here?

The content of my lollipop.ini is

\input lollipop
