  Silly questions:

1. Did you recompile Lua?

2. Did you run the right Lua interpreter?

3. Did you change the right LUA_PATH_DEFAULT for your platform (Windows vs.

4. Do you have the environment variable LUA_PATH, LUA_CPATH or LUA_INIT

  I made a change to LUA_PATH_DEFAULT in luaconf.h and I found that
condition 4 was messing up the results.
