[NTG-context] Format creation with luatex

I fail to create a format with luatex. I followed Hans'
instructions¹ from TUG 2009. Example:

  % file fmt-plain.tex
  \input plain
  \directlua {tex.enableprimitives('', tex.extraprimitives())}
  \everyjob \expandafter {%
      \input luatex-basics\relax
      \input luatex-fonts\relax
      \input luatex-mplib\relax

The format generation stops with a star (*).

  $ luatex --ini fmt-plain.tex
  This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.70.1-2011051918 (rev 4277)  (INITEX)
   \write18 enabled.
  Preloading the plain format: codes, registers, parameters, fonts, more fonts,
  macros, math definitions, output routines, hyphenation

Any help appreciated.
