[tex-live] no german hyphenation?

there is a silly problem here: with the texlive inst 070117 setup i
don't get german hyphenation with pdflatex (and also not with
pdfbplain). The pdflatex format is built so that it tells:

German Traditional Hyphenation Patterns `dehypht' Version 3.2a
(Formerly known under the name `ghyph31' and `ghyphen'.)))
New German Hyphenation Patterns `dehyphn' Rev.31 <2001-05-07> (WaS)))

Also this is used:

hahe at hahepc2:~$ kpsewhich babel.sty

Here is a test file with babel:


On the server with TL-2005 it runs ok: paragraph alignment, four
hyphenated words. The same file on my machines here and at home with
TL-2007 does not hyphenate at all, three overfull boxes. I wonder what's
going wrong. How to debug this? Hints greatly welcomed.

Regards, Hartmut
