Here's what had worked for me (pasted from a message I posted in 
another thread):

In fact it was TL2005, not TL2004. Why I proceeded this way: to be on 
the safe side, to make sure there were no remnants from TL2003 in 
texmf.local, perturbing the TL2004 installation, and similarly to make 
sure there were no remnants of TL2004 in texmf.local, perturbing the 
TL2005 installation.

Above "my local additions" means only the files that I had willingly 
put there myself, and "standard files" means the files generated or 
installed in texmf.local by i-Installer.
