Glad to hear it. Just beware that the hidden preference may one day
need to be resetg.

Interesting. In /usr/local/texlive/2009/tlpkg/tlpobj/dancers.tlpobj,
the word 'character' in the last line of longdesc is surrounded by
single quotes (Unicode 0x2018 and 0x2019). Using `tlmgr show dancers`
in Terminal, I see small a with circumflex for each quote mark.
TLU uses `tlmgr show` for the info panel, and tries to interpret the
output as UTF-8. If it's not valid UTF-8, MacRoman is assumed, since
it's gapless and you'll always get something out of it. In this case,
the .tlpobj info appears to be reencoded incorrectly before I get it.
