Thanks for the report.

This type of error in luatex comes up semi-regularly. Often, it is the
result of bad lua programming, but this one looks like a proper engine
bug. It will be hard to track down, but I will create a bug tracker item
and hopefully it will be fixed in the next release.

Best wishes,
