Well, this could be the effect of running texlinks with a fmtutil.cnf  
that has old entries, though on my system, the pdftex binary is *not*  
replaced when I run texlinks (I get an error message). I am currently  
updating the i-Package with new binaries and a new fmtutil.cnf and  
better checks. I have no idea if this in some way causes your weird  
situation, though.

The fmtutil.cnf file has been in transition lately in the run up to  
TL2006.

There will be an i-Package update today.
