[luatex] LuaTeX 1.0.4 regression(?) for handling .eps file

Dear all,

I found a difference in behavior when using LuaTeX (version 1.0.4) in TeX Live
2017 pretest that is different compared to using LuaTeX (0.95.0) in TeX Live

I'm not very knowledgeable about LaTeX and friends, so if I am reporting
this in the wrong place, or if the change in behavior is expected,
hopefully someone can guide me.

The MWE is below:



Here is an inserted eps file: \includegraphics{mwe}


where mwe.eps is a file in the same directory.

xelatex also has no problem with this file.

For convenience, I also provide the files temporarily on Dropbox here:


mwe.tex and mwe.eps are the files needed to reproce the issue. Simply run

    lualatex mwe.tex

The "bad" folder contains the .log, .aux, and .pdf when compiling with lualatex in TeX Live 2017 pretest.
The "good" folder contains similar files for TeX Live 2016.

Comparing logs, the older LuaTeX version executes

    repstopdf --outfile=mwe-eps-converted-to.pdf mwe.eps

while the newer one executes

    epstopdf --outfile=mwe-eps-converted-to.pdf mwe.eps
