No, this is not the problem. The mpost binary was compiled on 5 Nov 
2004, but from the sources of TL2003.

I have been installing TL2003 on top of TL2004 here and vice versa and 
haven't seen anything go wrong. I would like to see (off list, send it 
to me directly)
- The complete log of your run that goes wrong
- A test file with the command to execute it that goes wrong

It is perfectly possible that something is wrong with the distro (the 
dual TL2003-TL2004 setup is hideously complex and chances are there are 
still some small areas with troubles), but so far I have not enough 
information to find out what is going wrong on your system.
