This might be the result of using an old i-Installer. The current 
version (see about box) is 1.0f).

Download the latest TeX-thin.dmg through the web page and use that 

The update will not have been 700kB, but 6MB for the programs and 60MB 
for the texmf tree.

If using the latest i-Installer from TeX-thin.dmg does not help, please 
contact me off list.
