The errors you are seeing with rebuilding (non-XeTeX-based) LaTeX  
formats almost certainly come from this. Your Unicode Greek and  
Sanskrit patterns are probably not valid (and certainly not actually  
useful) in a non-Unicode engine such as pdfTeX, and they'll be giving  
errors ("not a letter", "bad character code", etc) during the format  

I'm not really sure how the scripts handle error conditions, but most  
likely the result is that latex.fmt and pdflatex.fmt didn't get  
rebuilt; but you've still got old versions and they still work (as  
nothing much has changed in that area), so you may not notice any ill
