But, it did not fix the case where I'm trying to use the $\diamond$ symbol as the bullet, and compile time errors occur.  I will attach the log file.  Hopefully you can identify what is missing.

Good question.  How should I go about finding the answer to this?

Updated all TeXLive 2011 a week ago.

mkiv says: contextunable to define latinmodernmath-regular.otf as [simplefonts:1-12pt-mm-mr--2]

And as you say
"! Math error: parameter \Umathquad\displaystyle is not set.
system          > tex > error on line 19 in file bullet-problem.tex:
Math error: parameter \Umathquad\displaystyle is not set ...
"

and
"l.19        \item 此
の行にbulletを打つ。
Sorry, but I can't typeset math unless various parameters have
into the math family slots. Your font set is lacking at least
the parameter mentioned earlier.

! Math error: parameter \Umathquad\displaystyle is not set.
"

The item text is getting properly placed and there is actually no problem there. The parsing is getting out of step, probably because of a missing parameter.

I don't know if this is relevant but the below produces a null output.

$mtxrun --locate lmmath-regular.otf$

Is there a way to ascertain version information about simplefonts if there are different ones floating around?
