pdflatex or pdftex?

Interesting. I've tested my commands on both Mac OS X x86-64 and Linux x86-64, 
with the results as described. Seems as if at least some of the 64-bit engines 
on Unix contain the same bug (replacing "pdf" by "xe" doesn't change anything).

lualatex --recorder --output-directory=../b  '\documentclass{minimal}\csname 

also creates texput.fls in the current directory, in contradiction with the 
pdftex behavior.
