I don't have this file on Leopard, but  
com.apple.psnormalizer.fontcache.501 (501 is my UID). Instead  
ATSServer has its cache in the /private/var/folders tree. ('top -l 1 |  
grep ATS' will give you two lines, the one with the smaller PID runs  
with your UID, so use now 'lsof -p <that PID>' so see the files it has

The default XDV -> PDF convertor in Mac OS X is since TeX Live 2008

You could try again with some utility to clean the font caches...  
Before try to organise the fonts in Font Book in Libraries and  
Collections, switching them off to resolve duplicates.
