I don't agree. I could process several medium complicated test cases I
have collected over the time with pdfetex 1.30.5 from TL2005 (debian
packages) with my context packages for 2007.01.12.

The only point was that is was necessary to add the pdfetex -> pdftex
symlink, otherwise everything worked without problem.

So I *don't see that this was an *absolute* move.

But doesn't TL2007 *inlcude* the lm-math fonts???? Please reconsider
