Ok, so you're the second person to have no crash (the example works on
Hans' computer too). Just curious, which version of luatex did you use
for the tests? Here I'm using the version from TL'08, namely:

C:\Documents and Settings\manu>texlua --version
This is LuaTeX, Version snapshot-0.25.4-2008071819

Unfortunately, it does not work on my box either.

Do you have any idea what where the culprit could lie (code of kpse, of
os.spawn, particular system calls, etc.)?

Thanks for you help,
