The problem is that TeX from the linux distros is often incomplete and
not all binaries are included. It can thus happen that sometimes a
binary from the linux distro is used, sometimes the one from TL.
That's why TL should be at the beginning of the PATH, otherwise in the
best case the results are inconsistent, but quite often you use a
strange mixture of incompatible files which leads to strange errors. I
saw a lot of errors caused by mixing the linux distro and TL TeX.
