Ahhh, that explains a lot. 
Good, so this mystery is solved.

If you do on the command line
	tlmgr check depends
you should get a list of package which are not in any collection.
For example on my installation:
$ tlmgr check depends


This is because I have them from tlcontrib.

which have not been removed due to the disabled auto-remove.
