[tex-live] tlmgr update problem

Akira, hello.

Indeed, I had a xz.exe in the directory
c:\Users\goossens\bin\MinGW\msys\1.0\bin (version 5.0.3)

When renaming it , texlive uses the one in
C:\texlive\2018\tlpkg\installer\xz\xz.exe (version 5.2.3)
and eveything seems all right.

It is interesting to note that eveything worked until a few weeks ago. Has
the version in texlive changed in the meantime
introducing an incompatible change in the generated binaries?

Many thanks to all for your help.

Regards, Michel
