Could it have been after January 24st? This is the date when we released
a version (2.0.2c-4) that erroneously shipped /usr/local/share/texmf in
the deb. This caused a symlink to be converted to a real file for one
user when he upgraded from the buggy version to the fixed version,
2.0.2c-5 (that did no longer contain that directory).
