I copied disdvi from the inst/bin branch into the TL '10 binaries  
directory–and it works fine! But I am missing some additional data  
dvitype gives, the text typeset. It seems that it's not always  
retrieved, particularly when it's only very short... but exactly here  
it could be useful, for example to understand which characters or  
glyphs are used from the font in use.

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
