I was running tlmgr in GUI mode:

    232	14:50	tlmgr --repository=http://ftp.ctex.org/mirrors/texlive/tlpretest/ 
  --gui &

I am never sure what I do in tlmgr. The terms used in the GUI can mean  
anything. I am pretty sure that I checked that it had loaded the  
command line repository and then chose in Status "zu aktualisierende".  
(Today I don't see anything.) In shell this text appeared:

	Laden der lokalen TeX Live Datenbank
	Das kann einige Zeit dauern, bitte warten!
	Laden der TeX Live Datenbank der Installationsquelle
	Das kann einige Zeit dauern, bitte warten!
	Argument "18835+" isn't numeric in numeric lt (<) at /usr/local/ 
texlive/2011/texmf/scripts/texlive/tlmgrgui.pl line 1900.

I then searched in the list of packages shown for the string or number  
18835. I found it near the end on the tpic2pdftex entries.

/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-var/web2c/tlmgr.log contains:

	[Mon Jun 13 16:14:34 2011] update: tpic2pdftex.universal-darwin  
(18387 -> 22925)

No. I updated afterwards from the command line:

	tpic2pdftex.universal-darwin [5k]: local: 18387, source: 22925 (update)
	tpic2pdftex.x86_64-darwin [5k]: local: 18441, source: 22925 (update)

Mit friedvollen Grüßen


Der Unterschied zwischen Theorie und Praxis ist in der Praxis meist  
größer als in der Theorie
