recorder was rewritten in the latest LuaTeX.
lualatex --recorder --output-directory=../b \documentclass{minimal}\csname @@end\endcsname

creates ../b/minimal.log and ../b/lualatex<proc-id>.fls
and the current directory is empty in

This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.63.0-2010092500 (Web2C 2010) (rev 3898)

The LuaTeX team is Hans Hagen, Hartmut Henkel, Taco Hoekwater.
