[lucida] Question about lucida-otf.sty

Hi all —

While running Lucida OTF [system] fonts under LuaLaTeX, I’ve noticed that various ‘legacy maths alphabets’ are not loading (Latin Modern is produced) and that the math operators font hits a glitch. I don't these issues with other OTF math fonts, and I believe they are specific to lucida-otf.sty

A working example is below. The packages I’m using should all be current versions (at bottom).

These issues can be resolved by uncommenting the \set… commands noted — or by removing “version=normal” from lucida-otf.sty.  I’m not sure whether the issue is local to my system or more general?

% !TEX TS-program = lualatex
% !TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode


\usepackage[MM={Scale=0.92}, MMbold={Scale=0.92}, CAL={Scale=0.92}]{lucida-otf}

% adding these lines results in the correct text faces
%\setmathfontface\mathtt{Lucida Sans Typewriter OT}[Scale=0.92]
%\setmathfontface\mathsf{Lucida Sans OT}[Scale=0.92]
%\setmathfontface\mathbf{Lucida Bright OT Demibold}[Scale=0.92]
%\setmathfontface\mathit{Lucida Bright OT Italic}[Scale=0.92]

% adding the next line corrects error with operator font \mathrm

% the other path that corrects these problems is to remove "version=normal" from lucida-otf.sty

\newcommand*{\Sphinx}{Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow.}


$$f(x) = \tan(x) = \sin(x)\big/\cos(x) \text{ math operator font}$$

Compare maths alphabet font faces to those in text, legacy commands:
$$\mathrm{\Sphinx}   \quad   \text{{\Sphinx}}$$
$$\mathsf{\Sphinx}   \quad   \text{\textsf{\Sphinx}}$$
$$\mathtt{\Sphinx}    \quad   \text{\texttt{\Sphinx}}$$
$$\mathbf{\Sphinx}   \quad   \text{\textbf{\Sphinx}}$$
$$\mathit{\Sphinx}    \quad   \text{\itshape{\Sphinx}}$$
$$\mathbfit{\Sphinx} \quad   \text{\bfseries\itshape{\Sphinx}}$$

Compare maths alphabet font faces to those in text, unicode commands:
$$\symup{\Sphinx}   \quad   \text{{\Sphinx}}$$
$$\symsf{\Sphinx}   \quad   \text{\textsf{\Sphinx}}$$
$$\symtt{\Sphinx}    \quad   \text{\texttt{\Sphinx}}$$
$$\symbf{\Sphinx}   \quad   \text{\textbf{\Sphinx}}$$
$$\symit{\Sphinx}    \quad   \text{\itshape{\Sphinx}}$$
$$\symbfit{\Sphinx} \quad   \text{\bfseries\itshape{\Sphinx}}$$
