Since installing TeXLive 2013, I can’t get it to work anymore: it claims it can’t find the YaleAdmin font (although that is still installed in /Library/Fonts, with .suit files for the various faces).  OK, I thought, I need to produce some recommendation letters quickly, so I’ll just revert to TeXLive 2012, which worked fine.  So I open the System Preferences and choose the TeX distributions pref pane, and it presented all of the various versions I have on this system, with TeXLive 2013 checked.  When I then tried to check TeXLive 2012, it asked for my password, which I provided, but failed to make any change.  In fact, I can’t change the 2013 preference to any of the several distributions I have. So two questions:

The TeX Dist Pref Pane is broken in Mavericks. The author,
Jerome Laurens, has been notified and promises a fix.
