[tex-live] Language-local.dat and list of languages with loaded patterns

Just to be sure I double checked again.

Attached you find the pdflatex.log file (from 
2011/texmf-var/web2c/pdftex/) produced during format compilation, and 
the file marks.log produced five minutes ago while running marks.tex (a 
general file whose name and contents is irrelevant).

As you can see in the pdflatex.log file, the Bohairic language patterns 
are loaded after the Welsh ones, in position 75 (in my past message I 
wrote position 53, but I don't know where this number sprung out in my 
mind -- double checking permits to correct even these unimportant 
glitches). In the marks.log file after the word welsh there is the 
concluding past participle "loaded.".

I am not having visions; after checking, I am sure of what I am saying.
