hi there,

this (for the moment) last question is not really about the upgrade but
about context itself.  this is the problem because of which i upgraded
in the first (but not the only) place.

please consider the following minimal example:


\section{Pogány köszöntő}

Nézd! dércsipte fáink megőszült
fején ül most a szél és lengő
harangú tornyok között csak
megkondúlnak a jámbor imák!

Csorgó nyálával békés borjú
lépdel még szekerünk után, de
már nem kószál szárnyas szavakkal
szájunk körül halovány ámen!

Megmosakodtunk! tornyok között,
fákon pihenő szélben és most
megőszült fák közt csókokkal tarkán
pogány szemekkel kitavaszodtunk!

A testünket nézd! együtt fakad a
rüggyel drága hús és napbadobált
csókjaink után boldog torokkal
így, istentelenül fölsikoltunk!

some gurus will kill me now, because this is (for me) a simple
missfont.log case, but the truth is, that no other macro packages are
missing any fonts at all.  i must also add, that i did a

amaaq> sudo updmap --enable Map lm.map

before that, my accented letters were simply ingored out from the
output, and if i changed to a well known font (charter) per
instructions, i got a missing font again.

and the reset button lets you re-run autoexec.bat
