[tex-k] Disruptive bug in TeXlive2007 on Solaris

All tex binaries before doing any useful work start scanning the entire
colletion of my filesystems
I speculate that you are running tex as root, and $HOME (= /) is
confusing matters? Do you have TEXINPUTS set?
Certainly the programs do not in general try to read the entire
filesystem; in fact, they go to great lengths to avoid this exact
scenario, although obviously they are failing :(.
Please take a look at this problem
Can you please try running
latex -kpathsea-debug=-1 small2e >&/tmp/mylog
And send me the resulting mylog file? That should show where the bad
settings are located. I don't have a useful guess offhand.
