We are aware that 9.24 doesn't work, downgraded to 9.23 therefore, and
then upgraded to 9.25 when it was released.

The current version in TeX Live is 9.25.

If you still have 9.24, please update your TeX Live installation and
tell us whether the problem still exists.  Many problems reported by
TeX users were solved in 9.25.
