[tex-live] Automatic eps conversion stopped working (TL-2009-pretest)

I upgraded TL-2009 pretest this morning, and automatic eps to pdf  
seems to have stopped working:

Start with a document with eps figures included using e.g.
and which has not been previously converted to pdf

pdflatex gives me
unknown graphics extension .eps

If I add the one line
all works fine again.

But I thought the automatic thing was supposed to effectively do the  
same as adding line for me (and I am pretty sure I did not need to add  
it a few days ago). Or am I mistaken in how this automatic thing works?

Best wishes
