Oui, je comprend!

Did you determine the MAP file fragments containing the CM fonts? I  
think it's particularly bsr.map, plus cm-super-t1.map and cm-super- 
ts1.map (updmap --listmaps will show). After you've changed that file  
you need to run at least 'sudo -H updmap-sys' that the versions of  
pdftex.map or psfonts.map are built containing your changes.

Here happened some error which you should discuss with Gerben Wierda,  
the author of i-Installer!

I don't know, either. It looks like someone or something is cheating.  
Please look into the LOG file! I got from your example in my LOG (an  

(/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/tex/latex/lm/t1lmr.fd) [1{/Users/ 
ry/texmf/fonts/map/pdftex/updmap/pdftex.map}] (./AB-Test.aux) )</usr/ 

So at least one LM font is used – most probably for the sparse text!  
It looks as if LM does not substitute CM in math mode, yet. The use  
of particular fonts is hardcoded into the STY files, so it's hard to  
substitute them.

André, can you check that the pdftex.map used for your test file  
really contains '<<' in front of all CM font files? The same needs to  
be true for LM. Again, 'updmap --listmaps' (sudo -h updmap-sys -- 
listmaps) should list which MAP file fragments updmap knows and which  
are used to create the MAP files: those without leading '#' before  
their names. The LM MAP file fragments all have 'lm' in their names.

Wouldn't it be easier to throw away this five letter word software?  
The *bad* thing is that you need to make your enhanced versions of  
the MAP file fragments so tough that they survive a TeX update! So  
you can create private copies of them for your own private use, or  
you set up a new system-wide complete.map MAP file fragment, delete  
all the other MAP file fragments from updmap's list that are included  
in complete.map and enable your complete.map as successor of the  
deleted (in reality: commented) default 'scrap.'

BTW, I think in the recent TeX update (15 MB in tar.gz format) a  
faulty version of updmap was included: it does not find nor create  
files in the private area. (I am working on the bug that I found  
earlier this evening.)
