I cannot confirm this!

I logged into a clean etch pbuilder, installed tetex-bin and -base, and then upgradeded to sid, and all of the above files are present. I did this several times, with aptitude, with dpkg on the cmd line, ..., always with the same result.

Frans, are you sure about your observations, I don't see any way how that what you described can happen!

Do you use the latest packages?

and the tipa file is a bug in tipa due to a change in dh_installtex

Thanks and all the best
