Not from the DVD. I think (I can't remember well enough) I downloaded  
the first TeX Live 2007 separately in january and installed it.  
Anyway, moving the private texmf tree where you suggest solved the  
issue. Thanks for the information, and for your great work!

If I download now the present MacTeX package and install it, will it  
upgrade everything and repair the said behaviour ?
