thanks for your suggestion, but like you suspected: it doesn't help.  
TeX finds every file it needs, except for the otf:

kdebug:fopen(testfont.pdf, wb) => 0xa000dcec
updmap/pdftex.map, rb) => 0xa000dd9c
pdftex.mapkdebug:fclose(0xa000dd9c) => 0
KERN-LIGA-DLIG-ONUM-ACaslonPro-Regular.vf, rb) => 0xa000dd9c
KERN-LIGA-DLIG-ONUM-ACaslonPro-Regular--base.tfm, rb) => 0xa000ddf4
kdebug:fclose(0xa000ddf4) => 0
kdebug:fclose(0xa000dd9c) => 0
cm/cmtt10.pfb, rb) => 0xa000dd9c
cmtt10.pfb>kdebug:fclose(0xa000dd9c) => 0
a_6cirpq.enc, rb) => 0xa000dd9c
(0xa000dd9c) => 0
Error: pdfetex (file ACaslonPro-Regular.otf): cannot open OpenType  
font file fo
r reading
==> Fatal error occurred, the output PDF file is not finished!

Pretty bizarre. So all we can say right now: the path given for .otf  
in kpsewhich is not used by pdf(e)tex. I'm still puzzled.
