[OS X TeX] LaTeX "forgetting" texmf

Hi everybody,

I have a problem which has been bugging me for a while. Sometimes my  
LaTeX-installation (i-installer) just seems to "forget" about ~/ 
Library/texmf. When I try to typeset something with TeXShop it just  
isn't able to access packages I installed in texmf. I haven't yet  
found a solution for this, the only thing that works is to log out  
and in again. After that it always works. I think this happens mostly  
when my machine has been put to sleep, but I don't think it happens  
always, at least I can't see a pattern. It's not a major bug, but if  
I could avoid the logout I'd be happy.

"I have never been certain that the moral of the Icarus myth is, as  
is generally accepted, 'don't fly too high', or whether it might also  
be thought of as: 'forget about the wax and feathers, and do a better  
job on the wings." Stanley Kubrick
