Yesterday (Oct. 2 for me) I downloaded your newest TeX i-package and  
updated my installation (expert, 2005); but today, reading your above  
message, I checked the .fmt files dates, v. gr.:

-rw-r--r--   1 root  admin  263710 Sep 18 20:48 /usr/local/teTeX/ 

and so the rest of *.fmt

So I updated (Oct. 3, for me) the TeX i-package (just 126 KB had  
changed) and installed it (not clean install, just Install and  
Configure), and now I get, for instance:

-rw-r--r--   1 root  admin  263710 Oct  3 21:00 /usr/local/teTeX/ 

I have already typeset a few documents with different fonts, and  
everything is OK.

Best regards,
