Can I ask why you are using the fontspec package while using standard psfnns fonts rather than system fonts? Just because it's lualatex doesn't mean you must use fontspec. Why are you using the palatino package, which is noted as being obsolete in the psfnns documentation, when the mathpazo package has replaced it?


%%!TEX TS-program = lualatex
%%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode


I see no ``checksum error'' mentioned in the log file. The console output (also in the log file) of the \listfiles command on my up to date TeX Live 2011 is
