Thank you for the bug forward. This bug has also been reported by
someone else, and it was a simple portability error. The exact problem
is that the varmem_sizes array (in luanode.c) depended on chars being
signed by default.

There already is a in the luatex repository now. No new release has
been made yet, but that will happen somewhere in the next week, so
version 0.11.1 will fix the bug.

Best wishes,
