Fixed compatibility issues with LuaTeX which arised after non-backward-compatible updates to LuaTeX.

Config file:

Also fixed the following reported bugs: (see https://bitbucket.org/martin_scharrer/standalone/issues)
 * Issue #22: Removed processing of AUX file with \globaldefs.
 * Issue #25: Changed how papersize special is added for dvips.
 * Issue #26: Adding '-units PixelsPerInch' to 'convert' call so that generated PNGs have correct units parameter.
 * Issue #30: Replaced jobname with subjobname in DVIPS precommand.
 * Issue #31: Added \makeatother before inputting .sta files so that the subpreamble-changed test works with files
using \makeatletter.
