Glad to hear it.  This wasn't the update with the latest changes, so
expect another one soon.

Maybe, but these failures are very hard to diagnose.  AV software
often aggravate things further by racing against applications for file
access.  On many occasions I witnessed my system lock up for a while,
because of AV grinding through stuff and denying file access to
applications (although, I've never experienced failures due to this,
but it may depend on the AV you use).  BTW, I used AVG in the past,
but it grew to such a monstrosity, that I switched to avira.  It was
quite lean two major versions back, but it's a big resource hog now as
well.  Anyone has a lightweight AV to recommend for TL users?

No problem.
