"package add" no longer works

Got this error today when packaging even though nothing changed (well something did, see below):
Failed to parse package info date from package file: Bad data on this hrev47395 install.
Digging, I found out that
package is choking on a StyledEdit attribute of the .PackageInfo file.. only now that it is combined with a Pe attribute. Indeed a few days ago I transitioned from using StyledEdit to exclusively using Pe, so I guess I'm now getting a double serving of "caret position" attributes on my textfiiles :-).
Anyway the workaround was simply to "reset" the .PackageInfo file, create a new one, free of text editor attributes. Filing a low-priority ticket in case the underlying reason matters though..
