Can you suggest a few random files, please, which ought to have
recent dates ?  Oh, wait, I think I might have spotted the problem:

I see I have ~/.texlive2014 and ~/.texlive2015.

In .texlive2015/texmf-var/ I have directories luatex-cache and
web2c, with various subdirectories.

So, because the binary includes newer code than the past source
builds, but for the same year, those files are causing the
problem ?  Is there a preferred way to get rid of them, or to
refresh them ?
