We just discussed that problem off-list. On my system it's the culprit
of /System/Library/Fonts/LastResort.ttf (you can check that with
"Inspect -> Open files and folders" in Activity Monitor). Taco will
probably modify LuaTeX a bit to avoid the problem.

I managed to use
    export OSFONTDIR=/some/existing/empty/path
but someone probably also needs to figure out why ConTeXt is loading
that font in the first place.
