just to report how this problem can be cured: I erased the entire  / 
Library/i-Installer with all its receipts - they were not up to date  
for some of my i-packages and missing for texlive.ii2. Then I  
installed and configured all packages again. Now the receipts and  
therefore also the information in iinstallers Pkg Properties Panel  
are up to date and also they change after an update.

why the problem has been there in the first place, that i don't know.
