I have just checked in one further xetex fix, correcting a bug that  
was reported on Mac OS X but could potentially affect other platforms  
as well. The thread "Strange problem with 0.996 and 0.9995 xetex and  
File Names" on the xetex mailing list yesterday/today describes the  
problem, for anyone curious. (Apostolos reported a crash on  
OpenSolaris that may well have been caused by the same underlying  

The patch is checked in to TL r.15135 (xetex will now report its  
version as 0.9995.2); it would be great if the rebuilds could pick up  
this fix as well.

Sorry for the timing, but this only just got reported (though the bug  
has existed since 2006!).
