Sorry, that is not our problem.

You have choosen to create symlinks from the texlive installation to

If a program does not work for you then we are sorry, but we cannot
guarantee that everything works on all linux incantations.

If you want to fix that, just simply do NOT add all the links to
/usr/local/ (you can remove them with tlmgr symlinks remove) and simply
add the real path to the texlive binaries AT THE END of your PATH

That is definitely not a bug here, but with system integration. If you
want to have well integrated TL into your distribution wait until SUSE
packages TeX Live 2008.
