About the last question, I think uninstalling TL2007 and then
reinstalling it would be the way. But you might get into trouble with
dependencies ---you might be asked to uninstall first programs that
depend on TL.
Now ---by any chance would you have an invisible directory called
something like .texlive2007 in your $HOME? If so, could you check if
inside it there are some psfonts and pdftex map files?
