This has now happened twice, during the final stages of an update. The
first time (yesterday), a Windows guest was running on the machine
and I made the obvious assumption. Problems were reported by tlmgr
check all, so I re-installed texlive. Today (the next day) there was
a similar crash. Nothing in the system log. kpathsea warned about No
usable entries in ls-R files, so I texhashed. But tlmgr check all still
reports problems:

 Files present but not covered (relative to /usr/local/texlive/2012):

  Running check runfiles:

What should I do now? It seems re-installing won't solve the problem.
Running Centos 6.3. The system hasn't previously been unstable. A
similar system at home (same hardware and mostly same software) hasn't
been problematic.
