Well, wget normally is very stable. Maybe its really was because auf easter
week-end that a lot of traffic was the cause.

The problem was, that tlmgr just popped up when I tried to uninstall the in
"Programs and functions " (Programme und Funktionen in german Vista) and
then nothing happened. tlmgr on console told me that you have to uninstall
it the the "Windows-way". :-(

Well, I think, that when you first get a working mirror tlmgr works for most
of the users very well, so IMHO it's not that bad for lets say 98% of the
users. - Because texlive still is more commonly used on *nix based systems
than on windows. ;-)
