A followup, this time sticking to the actual subject:

> Just did this, with TLU 1.21.  Got the critical update with no problems.  Then a normal update with 6-8 new items.  At the end, I got “Update Succeeded” and the following left over in the viewer.  I assume this is because of an “out of band” update of the critical stuff.

The log file, after the run referred to above, shows these entries referring to “paper”:

2015-06-29 23:07:49 +0000 Notice -[TLMMainWindowController _paperSizeCheckTerminated:][48555]	Unable to determine current paper size for pdftex
2015-06-29 23:07:49 +0000 Notice -[TLMMainWindowController _paperSizeCheckTerminated:][48555]	System paper size = letter, pdftex paper size = (null)
2015-06-29 23:11:39 +0000 Notice tlu_ipctask[48689]	Updating dccpaper

However, I just reran TLU, and without any actions, I get this in the log:

2015-06-30 02:08:41 +0000 Notice -[TLMMainWindowController _paperSizeCheckTerminated:][49871]	System paper size = letter, pdftex paper size = letter

I guess all’s well something something something.
