Error from 'epstopdf-pkg' with luatex+polyglossia+graphicx

Dear all,

With latest TL I'm getting a weird error where I have no idea who could
be the culprit:

When I run this MWE


through lualatex I get in the .log:

Package: epstopdf-base 2019-11-30 v2.9 Base part for package epstopdf
[\directlua]:1: unexpected symbol near '\'.
l.165       \directlua{require("pdftexcmds")}
The lua interpreter ran into a problem, so the
remainder of this lua chunk will be ignored.

The error disappears, when I either

- remove [babelshorthands]
- comment \setdefaultlanguage{german}
- comment \usepackage{graphicx}
