Code:
# layman -s portage-xgl
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/layman", line 37, in ?
    main()

Exception: Failed to read the overlay list at ("/usr/local/portage/layman/cache_65bd38402ac8431067b54904bd2ed2d1.xml")!
Error was:not well-formed (invalid token): line 661, column 1


I checked the file, there is an additional </layman> at the end of the file. Obvious just deleting it doesn't work because it's overwritten when I run 'layman -s portage-xgl'.

Thanks.
