After installing texlivetest2007-inst-20070121.iso, I've had a major 
problem with latex documents using latin modern fonts through


These documents don't displaying correctly (both the dvi and pdf); more 
precisely, the math fonts are replaced by the roman font, and the 
document takes forever to display and looks like gibberish. I diffed the 
psfonts.map files in 20070120 and 20070121, and there were new entries 
in the latter for all sorts of lm fonts, but I'm not sure what's the 
impact of this on my problem. In any case, what I do know is that none 
of this happened with previous test (inst) versions up to 20070120.



P.S. This is much less important, but I've also noted a couple of 
glitches regarding texconfig. First of all, arrow keys have stopped 
working (I must use the +/- keys, which is less convenient; I'm using 
ncurses 5.6 on Mac OS X 10.4.8). Also, it is impossible to open 
config.ps via texconfig (when you select it in the dvips menu you just 
go back to the main menu).
