It is not even neccessary to have mylatexformat installated or to supply any user defined LaTeX file like "sample2e.tex" above. Just run

lualatex -ini "&lualatex"
This crashes with
lualatex: ../../../texk/web2c/luatexdir/tex/maincontrol.w:3491: initialize: Assertion `static_pdf==((void *)0)' failed.

under "LuaTeX, Version beta-0.70.2-2012062812 (TeX Live 2012) (INITEX)".

As far as I now this is the only way to create a precompiled preamble in lualatex and unfortunately this seems to be broken at the moment.

The project seems to be set wrongly on this report. I would think that luatex would be better than TLContrib. Perhaps the devs would then notice this report. I had trouble finding it because the project filter was set to luatex. Also, the bug is definitely in the code and not in any TeX-file.

Texlive uses
luatex -ini -jobname=lualatex -progname=lualatex lualatex.ini
to create the formats. Perhaps this could be a workaround. But I believe the bug does not come from -ini but from &lualatex.

So, could anyone who has enough rights change the project to Luatex, please?

I created a new report with the correct project. It has already attracted discussion. See 0000787.
