Hi Ulrike,
I assume that it existed already because I did nothing else between
running the commands kpsewhich, texhash, kpsewhich.  And texhash
doesn't create anything except the ls-R files.

What surprised me is that it never happened before.  I installed TL
zillions of times and tested getnonfreefonts very often with new
installations.  I'll try again next weekend.  If the problem is
reproducible, I think I'll find the cause.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
