Help, I am already suffering from mental catcoditis.
It will be fixed.

Thanks, another bug, the file should only be loaded if option `psdextrsa'
is given. (The option allows to use \alpha, \geq, ... directly
instead of \textalpha, \textgeq, ... for bookmarks with a slight
runtime penalty).

The fixes will be in v6.82y, probably today.
