Imagine that you install TL and run texconfig as a normal user. The
map files will then be in texmf-var. Afterwards you install newer
version with different map files but you configure it as root. When
you work as a normal user, TL will use the old map files from
texmf-var and you can expect problems. Running updmap --syncwithtrees
often fixes such problems.
