Taco, Wolfgang,

thanks for your replies. Wolfgang: that doesn't change anything here. Taco: 
after applying this patch, a luatex-cache hangs at 

!load otf       : loading: 
/Users/tas/texmf/fonts/truetype/greek/gentium/GenAR102.TTF (hash: 

So it looks like the font loading mechanism has some deeper problems. The same 
binary works as exoected with an older version of ConTeXt, so it doesn't appear 
to be a luatex problem.

All best
