Yes, as I indicate above, it is still there.

I thought about that, but when given the option, I have been telling  
it to keep my stuff. I think that the window was titled something  
like "Individual user configuration handling?". I told it to "Keep as  
is". Is this what you are referring to? Should I have done something

I would really like to know what happened here. I must say that I am  
not the most novice user and I am finding all of these choices to be  
more confusing all the time. I really wish that more information was  
provided when major changes to the installation are made (as appears  
to be the case with the recent TeX release). I am not saying that the  
changes shouldn't have been made since they appear (from what I have  
gleaned from the list) to be important, I just wish that the  
consequences were better summarized for people like me. Am I the only  
person whose head is spinning? I pity people who are just starting  
out. :-)
