I came across strange behaviour of MathTime after upgrading to TL 2004 
too. After a bit of research, it turns out the default has changed:

- For MathTime you have two setups: the original commercial MathTime 
fonts, shipped by Y&Y, with also a MathTime Plus addition (containing 
bold math fonts, for one thing); and the "open source" clone, called 

- With TL 2003 the default was the commercial MathTime, and the 
included LaTeX support files were set for the complete MathTime set 
(i.e. MathTime 1.1 and MathTime Plus). With TL 2004 the default is 
Belleek, and the included support files are set for this set (which 
includes no bold maths).

What should be done in your case (since it seems you're using bold 
maths) is explained in 
(with a few straightforward adaptations for Gerben's setup).
