I have a local copy of the svn repository that is updated using rsync.
 TeX Live
2008 was installed form this source, and updated using "tlmgr update --all".
The host OS is Fedora 8 linux, but I included the Win32 binaries which I run
using wine.

After the Aug. 2 update xeletex.exe is failing.  The top of the
svn log gives:

r10002 | karl | 2008-08-02 03:31:17 +0200 (Sat, 02 Aug 2008) | 1 line

The failure is:
