standalone not working with psfrag

I have the following MWE

\documentclass{standalone}
\usepackage{psfrag}
\begin{document}
text
\end{document}


I use latex and dvipdf. I have two machines with MacTex-2016. I've just updated with tlmgr on machine A and the MWE produces a full A4 page. On machine B it produces a pdf the size of text (which is what I want). Here are the different lines in the log from machine A

LaTeX2e <2016/03/31> patch level 2

File: graphics.cfg 2016/06/04 v1.11 sample graphics configuration
File: dvips.def 2016/07/10 v3.1a Driver-dependent file (DPC,SPQR)


and from machine B

How do I use tlmgr on machine A to downgrade graphics?

Add \usepackage[nosetpagesize]{graphics}

\documentclass{standalone}
\usepackage[nosetpagesize]{graphics}
\usepackage{psfrag}
\begin{document}
text
\end{document}


• That fixes the current problem, thank you, +1. How do I downgrade a package when I know an update is causing trouble, so that I don't have to come here asking for a workaround? – Ramashalanka Jul 26 '16 at 23:25
• Downgrading standalone wouldn't help. The problem is not due to a change of standalone, but due to changes in the latex core packages and standalone not adjusting to them. You could revert the updates of the graphics files with tlmgr but I wouldn't do it. The work-around is fine. – Ulrike Fischer Jul 27 '16 at 7:59
• I wasn't talking about downgrading standalone. My original question (above) is "How do I use tlmgr on machine A to downgrade graphics?" The workaround is fine, but I want to know how to downgrade to avoid coming here for help on future bugs. – Ramashalanka Jul 27 '16 at 9:30
• Sorry I didn't read your question until the end. You find the documentation for restore here: tug.org/texlive/doc/…. But restoring isn't always the best curse of action, also I don't know why you want to avoid to come here -- we are friendly people and quite a lot love to debug and resolve bugs. – Ulrike Fischer Jul 27 '16 at 10:09
• You can set the option as global option: \documentclass[nosetpagesize]{standalone} then you will get only a warning in TL15. – Ulrike Fischer Jul 27 '16 at 10:55
