As a first-aid kit I tried "tlmgr restore". Is it supposed to work for
auto-removed packages? After

| C:\>tlmgr restore powerdot 25656
| Do you really want to restore powerdot to revision 25656 (y/N): y
| Restoring powerdot, 25656 from C:/Programme/texlive/2013/tlpkg/backups/powerdot.r25656.tar.xz
| tlmgr.pl: package log updated: C:/Programme/texlive/2013/texmf-var/web2c/tlmgr.log
| running mktexlsr ...
| done running mktexlsr.
| running mtxrun --generate ...
| done running mtxrun --generate.

the package is not restored at all. None of the powerdot files files are
back in texmf-dist.
