Summary0000964: segfault when a file is opened in the Lua initialization script and the recorder feature is on
DescriptionLuaTeX crashes with a segmentation fault when a file is opened, either for reading or for writing, from the Lua initialization script while the recorder feature is on.
Steps To ReproduceRun `luatex --interaction=nonstopmode --recorder --lua=test.lua -- main.tex`.
Additional InformationSee [this issue](

The jobname isn't known yet at the Lua initialization script stage. This suggests that the ${jobname}.fls file (where the file open record is outputted) isn't open at that moment. Perhaps the recorder feature is, however, active, and tries to log the file activity despite its output not being yet open.
TagsNo tags attached.

Thank you!

I can't find an option to close the report. Perhaps it's to be done by admins?
