This is where the bug hides: The TeX Live collection does not include 
the complete set of Sauter tools.

In particular, the file b-bbold.mf is missing. This file is, when it 
exists, used by maketexmf for creating the file bbold11.mf, and the 
above crash disappears. It is contained in the directory


but it seems that the entire contents of this directory is absent from 
TeX Live 2007. It does come with tetex.
