[tex-live] problem with texmf.cnf in texlive-inst-2007-01-06

I just installed the latest TeXLive test (inst) image on my PowerBook G4 
(running Mac OS X 10.4.8), and ran into a (minor) problem. Namely, 
during the installation I set $HOME/Library/texmf as my home texmf tree 
   (d 4 $HOME/Library/texmf), but after the installation process 
finished I checked texmf.cnf (found by kpsewhich in 
/usr/local/texlive/2007-01-06/texmf/web2c/) and noticed that TEXMFHOME 
was still set as $HOME/texmf.

Hope this helps,


P.S. fmtutil.cnf was recently changed to correct the entry for pdfetex. 
However, now the entry for pdftex lists language.def as the pattern 
file, even if as far as I know (at least up till recently) plain pdftex 
doesn't use any pattern file. So shouldn't the entry for pdftex read

pdftex          pdftex  -    -translate-file=cp227.tcx *pdftex.ini
