Dear Axel and David,

Thanks for the help. I set the permissions of all the directories  
under .texlive2007 to 775, and set the sticky bit on. The problems I  
had earlier are no longer there. TeX is able to create the pk files  
for some of the fonts at very low sizes now. (I have to typeset an  
article in two column layout in 10pt, and the articles has a lot of  
prooftrees, which for want of space are set in {\tiny ...}. This  
forces TeX to create pk files for very small point sizes.)

Anyway, looking at David Watson's permissions, it looks like only  
some of the subdirectories need to have their sticky bits on. Does  
anyone else have any ideas? Are there subdirectories of .texlive2007  
that shouldn't have their sticky bits on?
