first of all I like the GUI-design. I did use the tlmgr from the  
command-line before (the steps as recommended on the list(in the pdf)  
but not the tlmgr-GUI.
All I did was opening TeX Live Utility 0.2 and it started with the  
information about some critical updates, which i installed. X11  
started then. Later I chose update all. X11 stayed in the background  
unfortunately I closed the X11-related command-line-window (I think  
this was, what I saw) so I cannot tell you much more. When I open TeX  
Live Utility 2.0 now, this doesn' tseem to happen, besides it says: no  
updates available (and offeres TeX Live Utility 3.0 whioch I am  
installung right now.)
