[tex-live] tlmgr restarts and exits with error

While doing some testing of tlmgr output, I found that it's now  
exiting with an error after doing an update.  This is pretest  
installed via MacTeX 2009, and updated with update-tlmgr-latest.sh a  
couple of hours ago.

My 2009 installation at work (also via MacTeX) wasn't doing this  
earlier today, so I suspect it's the latest tlmgr...unless I broke  
something else?

BTW, there is no such directory /Users/koch on my system, but that  
string appears in a few files in /usr/local/texlive/2009:
