'tlmgr update' seems to have trouble exiting gracefully after a network 

$ tlmgr update --all
tlmgr: installation location ftp://ftp.math.utah.edu/texlive/tlnet
[11/11] update: xindy.i386-cygwin (13930 -> 14304) ... Downloading
did not succeed, please retry.

Installation of new version of xindy.i386-cygwin did fail, trying to unwind.
Can't call method "root" on an undefined value at 
/usr/local/texlive/2009/tlpkg/TeXLive/TLMedia.pm line 285, <TMP> line 

Let me know if there's any more information I can provide.  I didn't see 
anything relevant in tlmgr.log except "failed update: xindy.i386-cygwin 
(13930 -> 14304)".
