When I was digging out one problem with beamer and geometry package I found
a bug with lualatex.

Lets consider this small example:



\title{Example Presentation Created with the Beamer Package}
\author{Till Tantau}




\subsection{Overview of the Beamer Class}
  \frametitle{Features of the Beamer Class}

  \item<1-> Normal LaTeX class.
  \item<2-> Easy overlays.
  \item<3-> No external programs needed.      

and run it through lualatex engine (this file should give an error if
geometry package of ver. 5.0 is used, see another messages in list).
(just before update the TL I saw the same behavior.)

The first run of lualatex is ok. I get pdf file but the second run right
after the first one is ended with lualatex segfault.

I checked this with upstream lualatex (TL 2009 with today update) and
lualatex from my distro (Archlinux). System: x86_64.

latex, pdflatex and xelatex run ok on this file.
