I wonder, whether the latexmk.pl script that runs from the command  
line is the same as the one that runs from within TM. I think TM will  
run its own version of latexmk.pl, which I updated recently. But  
perhaps you have another latexmk.pl? When you use latexmk.pl from the  
command line, how do you invoke it, and what is the value, if any,  
returned by "which latexmk.pl"?
