No, it's definitely an error from pdflatex.
This error should not happen, because fflush() commonly flushes an
output stream of data to a file in a file system, either to write or
to update it. Since /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-var/fonts/map/
pdftex/updmap/pdftex.map is a read-only file (commonly a symbolic or
sym-link) for pdflatex, pdflatex has nothing to flush to this file.
It's bad that no status or error value was reported. Or can you see a
bit more in the LOG file?
Can you make it happen again? Can you list in Terminal with ls the
pdftex.map as in:
ls -l /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-var/fonts/map/pdftex/updmap/pdftex*
We are usually convinced more easily by reasons we have found
ourselves than by those which have occurred to others.
