[tex-live] mtxrun should write user luatex-cache to a user directory

According to $TEXLIVEROOT/texmf/web2c/texmfcnf.lua
the generated cache is placed in TEXMFSYSVAR but not in

Is that on purpose or just a "bug"?

Offending lines in texmfcnf.lua:
            -- We have only one cache path but there can be more. The first writable one
            -- will be chosen but there can be more readable paths.

            TEXMFCONFIG     = "home:.texlive2011/texmf-config",
