[ sorry, resend with a proper cc list ]

This assertion means the commit indicated src/library/Recommended/KernSmooth.tgz should be removed from the manifest, but it wasn't found in the manifest when we tried to remove it.  Is there anything special about this file?  Did it really exist before the commit?  Was it a softlink?
