Hi Bruno,

> A recent thread on the XeTeX list, about the inconsistent way in which the updated dvipdfmx.cfg affected various pretesters, has revealed there are currently two versions of dvipdfmx.cfg in people's setup (at least those who installed via mactex, I don't know about other platforms):
> /usr/local/texlive/2021/texmf-config/dvipdfmx/dvipdfmx.cfg
> /usr/local/texlive/2021/texmf-dist/dvipdfmx/dvipdfmx.cfg
> The version in texmf-config, which has precedence, is older and invokes gs with -dDELAYSAFER (= -dNOSAFER).

You need to update the paper configuration by doing
	tlmgr paper a4
or similar, to make sure the new dvipdfmx.cfg is installed.

We are discussing ways how to deal with that automatically.
