May I chime in here? Hans, a couple of weeks ago, I reported a similar problem: none of the fonts in my personal texmf-trees ends up in the database. I can still reproduce the problem:

luatools AGaramondPro-Regular.otf

mtxrun --script fonts --list --all "agaramond*"

(i.e. nothing found). I can only use all these personal fonts via the file: syntax; name: does not work. Maybe these problems are related? Something's not quite kosher in the font database...
