polyglossia doesn't seem to work with package lastpage for several

\setmainfont{DejaVu Sans}

The compilation output ends with:
Runaway text?

LaTeX Warning: Reference `LastPage' on page {\font \zf at basefont ="Dej\ETC.
! Forbidden control sequence found while scanning text of \write.
<inserted text>
l.10 \pageref{LastPage}


Similar problems for arabic and farsi, however it works well e.g. for
russian.  Thus it might be related to "right to left" languages.

BTW, I'm using TeX Live 2009 as packaged in Debian/sid.

Thanks for any ideas/hints, Andreas
