[tex-live] tlmgr bug

The latest tlmgr does not work, due to the following bug:

tillina:/usr/local/texlive/2009 artemio$ sudo tlmgr update --all
tlmgr: installation location /Users/koch/texlive2009/Master
Cannot load TeX Live database from /Users/koch/texlive2009/Master at / 
usr/local/texlive/current/bin/universal-darwin/tlmgr line 3198, <TMP>  
line 101776.

In fact, I seem to remember a remark from a previous poster (regarding  
TeXLive) utility to the effect that the string "/Users/koch/" was  
present in several files in the pretest TeX distribution. Also, "tlmgr  
option" produces the following output:

tillina:/usr/local/texlive/2009 artemio$ tlmgr option
Destination for symlinks for man pages (sys_man): /usr/local/man
Default installation location (location): /Users/koch/texlive2009/Master
Destination for symlinks for info docs (sys_info): /usr/local/info
Run postinst code blobs (postcode): 1
Create formats on installation (formats): 1
Install source files (srcfiles): 1
Install documentation files (docfiles): 1
Destination for symlinks for binaries (sys_bin): /usr/local/bin

I tried to fix the problem by setting the location, but I didn't  

tillina:/usr/local/texlive/2009 artemio$ sudo tlmgr update --all
tlmgr: installation location /usr/local/texlive/2009
The release version of the installation source and the installation  
do not agree: source: , media: 2009
Please fix your location /usr/local/texlive/2009 at /usr/local/texlive/ 
current/bin/universal-darwin/tlmgr line 3208, <TMP> line 203552.

Is there any other workaround I could try?
