[tex-live] miniltx.tex is broken

 the file miniltx.tex is broken. It is missing the definition for
filename at simple (see output below this mail). I found out that the
suggested fix in this mail:


has only partly been applied (apparently done on 2010/01/02): The
second definition in that mail:

  \def\filename at simple#1.#2\\{%
       \let\filename at ext\relax
       \edef\filename at ext{\filename at dot#2\\}%
    \edef\filename at base{#1}}
  \def\filename at dot#1.\\{#1}

is missing in miniltx.tex and that makes it impossible to render my
plain tex documents with \includegraphics from the graphicx package.

Adding these lines to the miniltx.tex file (and replacing the at)
makes everything work again on my machine.


PS.: Here is my error log:
