That's OK. Perform a simple 'updmap' and you're privately up-to-date  
again! When it works for me then it can work for billions others. I'm  
not that special ...

And there is one more good thing with i-Installer: at least in expert  
mode it reminds of updating because it states that it has found a  
private configuration for user X, or Y, and maybe Z, too.
