Hi Norbert

I did

$ tlmgr --repository=ftp://tug.org/texlive/tlcritical update --self
tlmgr: package repository ftp://tug.org/texlive/tlcritical (verified)
tlmgr: saving backups to /usr/local/texlive/2017/tlpkg/backups
[1/1, ??:??/??:??] update: texlive.infra [338k] (44275 -> 44293) ... done
running mktexlsr ...
done running mktexlsr.
tlmgr: package log updated: /usr/local/texlive/2017/texmf-var/web2c/tlmgr.log

and I have not hit the bug yet with this version, which was it seems also
the one currently on the tlpretest mirror I rsync'ed from:

update-tlmgr-latest.sh -> update-tlmgr-r44293.sh

However when I do

$ tlmgr --version

it reports currently

tlmgr revision 44289 (2017-05-11 04:41:34 +0200)
tlmgr using installation: /usr/local/texlive/2017
TeX Live (http://tug.org/texlive) version 2017

Hence there seems to be a discrepancy between version numbers:
44289 and 44293
