I doubt whether parts of 5b7 disappeared.  I suspect what has happened
is that OzTeX 4 has called OzMF 5 to make missing PK fonts.
Note that the reverse cannot happen; ie. OzTeX 5 cannot accidentally
call OzMF 4 because I added some code to prevent it.

In general it is not a good idea to have 2 different OzTeX versions
installed on the one Mac.  My advice is to stick to OzTeX 4 until
the final release of OzTeX 5 is available (hopefully in a few weeks),
then switch to it and remove OzTeX 4.
