In past emails on the list you mention that you are using Snow
Leopard. I guess the same is true for the machine where you tested
MacTeX or do you happen to have some Tiger left somewhere in the

The weird thing is that the same file worked for me on 64-bit SL
(10.6.7) a few days ago and unless there is some file corruption
present (but then it wouldn't even unzip properly), mactex didn't
change since then.


PS: Not relevant for your report, but I would warn you that MacTeX
doesn't yet have an out-of-the-box working ConTeXt (you need to update
context first, but even then there are some "problems" with outdated
texmfcnf.lua file), but that was probably already evident from the
release date that is part of the name as we only got a properly
working ConTeXt today in the morning (tomorow morning follows another
no-so-critical fix).
