Peter and Ulrike: Thanks for your suggestions.  Apparently the external 
location feature disables the automatic selection of italic and bold 
(and perhaps other things like optical sizes?), but I think for an 
isolated (one-font) problem like mine that's a workable solution.

Ulrike:  I'm using MikTeX 2.8 and have no trouble using the type 1 
mnsymbol fonts with pdflatex and the minionpro package.  Also, on 
another computer where I have not installed the minionpro package, I 
don't encounter the same issue, so I would agree that MikTeX is not at 
fault, but rather the problem seems to be peculiar to having minionpro 
installed.  In following the installation instructions


could adding

Map MinionPro.map

or something else be causing the trouble?
