I tried to reproduce that.

I have reduced the version number of my tpic2pdftex.x86_64-linux package
by 1, and now I see
	tpic2pdftex	18835 (1.97)  for local version
			18835+ (1.97) for remote version
but I don't see any warnings/errors?

What did you do on that occasion? Can you reproduce that? And if yes,
what were the revision numbers of the tpic2pdftex and tpic2pdftex.x86_64-linux
(replace the last part with your platform) packages?

Best wishes

Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz smiled very slowly. This was done
not so much for effect as because he was trying to remember
the sequence of muscle movements.
