Radhakrisnan has experienced the same problem on Mac OSX,
with pdftex binaries built from sources. Plus another guy
with Linux Redhat i386.

I have been gazing at the diff in sources in 1.30.0 and
1.30.2, but couldn't find anything that seem suspicious.

I will try to make some set of log files from kpathsea for
comparison. Maybe Olaf or Karl can find something wrong.
