OK, works fine. I am still a little confused, however. I thought the 
beta version had been installed in the texmf.local folder to make it 
possible to return to the last official release in the texmf.tetex 
folder. Apparently the official 2005/12/01 release has also been 
installed in texfm.local instead of texmf.tetex, so that I still have, 
for example, two different versions of xspace. Why is this so?
