[OS X TeX] pdf font coding problems

As recently as Dec 9, I was able to include cmr fonts in illustrator  
but now this does not work anymore. Specifically, I was able to copy/ 
paste texshop equations into illustrator and display them properly  
(i.e. w/o font substitution) in latex. Now, when I try the same  
procedure, the copy/pasted math in the final latex output appear with  
substituted fonts. In the meanwhile I updated my TeX installation and  
this is apparently the reason for this behavior: I have backups of  
pdflatex output that looks fine, but when I typeset again the fonts  
become substituted. I've no idea what has caused this change - is  
there a way to obtain the old behavior? Alas, new is not always good...
