Yup, that's what I said.  As far as I remember (I suppose I could be 
confused, but probably not, because I'm sure I only did one successful 
compile and that was later), I ran install-tl, then the following 
commands from the instructions on 

    tlmgr update --self --all
    tlmgr --repository http://www.tug.org/~preining/tlptexlive/ update --all
    tlmgr --repository http://www.tug.org/~preining/tlptexlive/ install
    pmetapost pxdvi uptex

The version resulting from all that is the one that failed, and it still

Yup, just like for Zdenek, the older 806424-byte one works for me:

    This is dvipdfmx-20110311 by the DVIPDFMx project team,
    an extended version of dvipdfm-0.13.2c developed by Mark A. Wicks.

The revision date of the good one is 2011-03-11, which was over a year 
ago (an unforgettable date for all of us in Japan).  Are you sure it 
didn't get recompiled (on a system that has glibc 2.7) between then and 
now and end up in one of the updates to the repository that "tlmgr 
--repository http://www.tug.org/~preining/tlptexlive/ update --all" 
would pick up?  Notice that the date on my "bad" file is 2012-02-20.
