But there is another aspect of the problem. I did do:

   tlmgr update --all

in order to try the problem. My repository is
and here is mirrored the state discussed by you yesterday.

And the problem is: the reported bug is not reproducable on my computer. 
The format from luaplain.ini is normally generated and the key part of the 
log file looks like:

I mean that signal 11 signals that there is a problem with the binary: 
luatex or its libraries. This is not a real bug of my code which I wrote 
to the \directlua parameter.

If there is an expert which can diagnose the problem, I will happy.

I mean that the Latin-Modern fonts are loadable by luaotfload.
