That looks really weird. Let us try to debug it some more. Please be
patient, that is probably going to take some time, and thanks for your

Note: please provide a transcript for all your tries. Also please make
sure you make the test in a new empty directory (to evade reuse of

Does "tla changes" modifies the content of the patchlog? You could use
md5sum on the patchlog file just after update too.

Does the problem also appear with "tla replay" in place of "tla update"?

If the problem does not appear with "tla replay", does it appear when
doing "tla undo; tla replay; tla redo"?

Does the problem appear if you first update to patch-7 and then update
or replay?
