https://tug.org/pipermail/tex-live/2018-September/042279.html is
happening again? This time with Ghostscript 9.25.

Is it me or the issue reported in

happening again? This time with Ghostscript 9.25.
Here I obtain successfully test.pdf in the TeX Live 2018, by

asy test.asy

settings.tex = "pdflatex";
unitsize(1cm);
draw((0,0)--(2,0));
label("$x$", (0,0), align=W);

See an attached asytest.zip.

So, it seems that there is a problem with my system (TeX Live 2018 in
windows 10).

Doing asy test.asy in

settings.tex = "pdflatex";
unitsize(1cm);
draw((0,0)--(2,0));
label("$x$", (0,0), align=W);

I get the same messages mentioned in
https://tug.org/pipermail/tex-live/2018-September/042279.html.

rungs -v
GPL Ghostscript 9.25 (2018-09-13)

asy --version
Asymptote version 2.44 [(C) 2004 Andy Hammerlindl, John C. Bowman, Tom
Prince]

Is there anything I could do to provide more information to help solving
this problem? I would be very appreciated.

I may add that at the first time this ocurred, I restored the package
tlgs.win32 from backup and did it again the second time.

[Thu Sep  6 11:54:56 2018] update: tlgs.win32 (47081 -> 48582)
[Fri Sep  7 17:10:59 2018] restore: tlgs.win32 (47081)
[Sat Sep  8 09:40:30 2018] update: tlgs.win32 (47081 -> 48619)
[Sun Sep  9 10:16:59 2018] update: tlgs.win32 (48619 -> 48622)
[Fri Sep 14 13:55:52 2018] update: tlgs.win32 (48622 -> 48659)
[Fri Sep 14 14:44:27 2018] restore: tlgs.win32 (48622)
[Sat Sep 15 07:57:15 2018] update: tlgs.win32 (48622 -> 48659)

Important:

It is possible to use 32bit gsview-5.0 as a default pdf viewer
in asymptote with the bundled 32bit ghostscript DLL.

If you are using 32bit gsview-5.0 as a default pdf viewer,
Uncheck "Options ---> Safer" and write -dSAFER
in "Options ---> Advanced Configure... ---> Ghostscript Options"
instead.

It seems that "Options ---> Safer" in gsview-5.0 does not support
external iccprofiles directory in 9.25, since gsview-5.0 is very old.

Best,
Akira
