If Windows is the only OS at odds in this specific situation, then it is
LuaTeX’s fault, right? I can understand OP frustration, but repeatedly
blaming LuaTeX [developers] for the deficiencies of his OS of choice
does not seem very productive to me, and can annoying.

Instead of telling what LuaTeX should and shouldn’t have done, he can
either 1) submit a patch 2) switch to a not-so-1960s OS 3) switch to a
not-so-1960s application 4) just live with it.
