[tex-live] Problem with 'mathtext' package after update of 'cyrillic' one

the mathtext package redefines the latex format command
\DeclareFontEncoding@ command. Previously the inputenc utf8.def file
redefined it again and so the utf8 definitions were loaded. Now
effectively the load order is changed as inputenc is pre-loaded and so
the mathtext definition is in force, as a workaround you can put
at the top of the file which forces
to be re-loaded and work as before.
or simply load mathtext later, after fontenc.

mathtext.sty will need a small update to avoid needing this, I'll work
something out later to suggest.

Thanks for the report,
