Well then has something changed within the last few days in `tlmgr`, or in
the tlpdb file or its format?  Might it have something to do with the
strange ".ilist" file I now see hanging around?

Grepping around reveals the message I'm getting is coming from line 2706
of tlmgr.  I don't understand perl, though, so I can't help trace it back.

We shall see.
