I'd suggest deleting the personal map files if you don't intend to make use of anything but those in the system.

Good observation! That should be
rm -r ~/.texlive2009
and if that gives permission denied (a symptom of using `sudo updmap' rather than `sudo updmap-sys') you need
suod rm -r ~/.texlive2009
since root will own the ~/.texlive2009 directory.
The ~/.texlive2009 directory will be recreated if needed so no worry.
