Hi Hans, all,

the two latest betas have trouble loading fonts from my own typescripts. All 
errors point to the same line in font-syn.lua. I don't have a minimal example 
yet, but here's a minimal command line that triggers the error on my box:

mtxrun --script fonts --list --pattern="*gentium*"
...text/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/font-syn.lua:706: bad argument #1 to 
'next' (table expected, got nil)

Any pointers?
1. delete the luatex cache
2. luatools --selfupdate
  mtxrun --selfupdate
3. luatools --generate

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.

do you have a small test file?
