Thanks a lot for your help. I tried inst-2007-01-22 and found out  
that texconfig is experiencing much worse problems than in the  
previous version. More precisely, when I go up and down in the menu  
list, the text for the menu item just selected and the previous one  
is repeated in reverse video, totally destroying the interface's  
appearance. Fortunately, the menus are still funcional, except for  
dvips configuration/global (which reverts to the previous screen).  
Since I didn't update anything in my system between 2007-01-21 and  
2007-01-22, I guess this probably reflects some last minute changes  
in texconfig, so I just wanted to let you know in case it helps.

Thanks again for everything,
