Shouldn't change anything.

Hmm, that sounds correct.

It would be great to find out *which* part of the code generates the nul

Can you please open the tlmgr shell
	tlmgr shell
and at the prompt type the following commands, and at each step check
whether the file has been created or not. Thanks
	load local
	load remote
	update --list

I don't see a reason why it shouldn't work. Reinhard, do you have actual
reasons to assume that?
