either I've made a dumb error or pinning is broken on Win32.

tlmgr show doesn't use pinning.txt, install knows about it but doesn't use it.


C:\Users\ms>tlmgr install microtype
tlmgr: using pinning file C:/texlive/2012/../texmf-local/tlpkg/pinning.txt
tlmgr: package repositories:
        main = ftp://ftp.fu-berlin.de/tex/CTAN/systems/texlive/tlnet
