Hi Jindrich,

since TeX Live 2010 isn't officially added to Fedora yet, I don't file
a Bugzilla ticket but bother you directly. :)

When the attached TrueType font "empty.ttf" is present in one of the
scanned font directories, the LuaTeX utility "mkluatexfontdb" crashes
with a segfault (using the latest TeX Live 2010 build from your yum
repo). This empty font is obviously an exotic case but it's a valid
TTF file that should be handled properly.

Maybe you can forward this issue to the proper TeX Live or LuaTeX
