The issue is present in all cases, it's just that you don't notice it
when you install a scheme that's big enough to contain the
"problematic package".
The file that shouldn't be found by kpathsea contains references to a
package that's apparently only installed with the bigger schemes, so
you don't notice anything weird there, but it breaks when the
referenced files are missing (which happens in the smaller schemes).
