Glad it helped.

A too comon problem, maybe a result of running "sudo updmap" which
can leave files in user directories that are owned by root.  I make sure
the tex live tree is owned by a regular user, and use <program>-sys
versions to do system-wide changes, but to me Mac OS X is unix with
a strange GUI.
