Thank you for help! I'll see if I can port this patch to 5.1. I'm not
currently at work, so I only will able to check at Sunday. And I'll
think if it really worth going non-standard. It a bit problematic -
someone (including me) carelessly upgrading lua without
applying/porting the path  will automatically invalidate all of the
written scripts.
