Thanks, I have fixed that in tlmgr.pl rev 14313. If you could test it *after*
tomorrows update to texlive.infra, so with the new tlmgr (or with a copy
obtained from svn of tlmgr.pl), that would be great. I don't have much time
testing myself since I am in the mountains, but the fix was obvious.

Thanks for reporting!!

Best wishes

Queasy but umbowed. The kind of feeling one gets when discovering a
plastic compartment in a fridge in which thing are growing.
