Hello,

take the following PlainTeX file:

%&luatex

\lccode`\(=0 % Just to be on the safe side

\showhyphens{regarding}
\showhyphens{(regarding}
\showhyphens{regarding)}

\bye


This results in:


This is LuaTeX, Version snapshot-0.25.3-2008060319 (Web2C 7.5.6)
(hyphenOther.tex
Underfull \hbox (badness 10000) in paragraph at lines 5--5

It seems that the "(" -- but not the ")" -- is treated as part of the
word, even though its \lccode is zero.

What am I doing wrong?


Thanks in advance,
Jonathan
