I have installed a current TH2007 image (20070119) at Win XP SP2 using
tlpm.  Their some bug (or, maybe, features) I find annoying:

1) Perl will be unconditionally installed. At my system Activestate
Perl isinstalled, its bin dir is in %PATH% and %PERL%LIB% is correctly
set. Thus I don _not_ need another Perl installation. I must confess
that I've found the old tlpm behavior--asking whether Perl should
installed--more comfortable.

2) When I later uninstall "collection-perl" by tlpm the "perltl" dir
structure is not removed although no dirs below "perltl" contain any
file (only dirs).

3) After uninstalling TL using tlpm my %PATH% is mutated: All paths
are written in capital letters only (no functional problem but I
consider this as ugly) and all "\"s are turned into "/"s.  In my
opinion the latter is a grave bug.
