And of course I did run "sudo mktexlsr" after putting them there and whenever I manually modified things. In fact, I ran it after the previous TeXLive Utility run of updates, with no error reported as I recall.

I thought that it came out that by default TeX Live Utility effectively runs tlmgr us though it was being run under `sudo -H' which will NOT search your personal texmf tree.

What happens if you run

sudo tlmgr update --all

in Terminal? Note that sudo is not being run with the -H option. If that runs fine then you might try unchecking TeX Live Utility->Preferences->Install updates for all users. This should put the map files in a personal texlive tree (not your personal texmf tree) and things should work.

Good Luck,
