Mumumu, not very helpful without an actual test case.

Yes, that is what I expect.

There is another item, that was fixed like 2 days after the first
release by uploading a new version of texlive-bin: luatex 1.09
from current svn is just borked wrt to context (or the other way round,
hard to say, anyway, luatex breaks backwards compatibility from 
1.07 to 1.09, which is IMNSHO a really stupid thing). I uploaded 
a new version of texlive-binaries that reverts to 1.07 of luatex,
so it *might* be that there something involved with luatex, but
since it is a *xetex* issue, that sounds more like a stupid theory than
