[luatex] Reproducible font cache corruption (?) with LuaHBTeX, Version 1.12.0 (TeX Live 2020)

I have a repository with two Latex files that are processed with LuaTeX. Individually these files process fine, but if I process one then switch to the other then I reliably obtain an error at the the very end of the typesetting:
> warning (pdf backend): unreferenced destination with name 'equation.0.6'
> ! error: (file ) (type 0): cannot find file ''
> ! ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!
Fixing this error requires that I delete the Luatex font cache. More specifically, I execute
> rm -rf ~/Library/texlive/2020basic/texmf-var/luatex-cache/generic/*
This is 100% reproducible, and affects both Linux and Mac.
Is there any interest in fixing this? Or should I just upgrade to a later version of Luatex? But how do I do that with TeXLive? I can provide a copy of the source materials to the developers upon request, though I cannot make the documents publicly available.
