Dear George,

Here is what Gerben said a few days ago about different versions in  
different packages.

    Probably not. Here is what I can say about it:

My strategy:
- texmf.gwtex contains stuff that is not in texmf.tetex. This also  
means it contains dfifferent stuff when you install 2003 (teTeX2)  
versus 2004-2005 (teTeX3). It even used to be that you had the teTeX  
beamer (3.01)when you installed 2004-2005 and the gwtex beamer (3.06)  
when you installed 2003, so 2003 got you a *newer* beamer than  

HTH, Tom Rike
