Personally, I just run directly out of svn.  Why bother to install at
all :)?

    a few hours or a day later after an "svn co" it installed ok
    again, and i guessed it's since somebody had added a missing file to
    some package.

No, I think it's because I only regenerate tlpdb once a day
(routinely).  Therefore when an update deletes a file, the tlpdb in svn
does not match the files in svn.

It would be way too time-consuming to regenerate tlpdb on every
update.  As you say, can just redo a while later.

Anyway, I'll think about making that die into a warn+return.
