All ok, I didn't meant that you must switch to minimals .

In Ubuntu I have put  minimals under /opt/luatex/minimals (and minimals-beta
in /opt/luatex/minimals-beta) .
They are unrelated with package system, texlive2007, texlive2008 and so on ;
also installing/updating minimals is easy (at least on ubuntu) apart luatex
version (but it's not really a problem) .
I run every tests under minimals and minimals-beta .
If they work, I assume minimals / minimals-beta are OK .
Your test works on my minimals, so (my) minimals are OK.
So if you install minimals /minimals-beta you can even say what is wrong in
your packaging
(if something is wrong: maybe you have mixed  files) .

I feel good with ubuntu, but for TeX related stuff I prefear manual
installation . I don't expect that anyone agree on this .
