: Your KPATHSEA variables are a mix of TeXLive 2007 and 2008. Tilde
: expansion is not used in 2007's texmf.cnf. Remember that tilde
: expansion is the feature of the shell, not of the operating system and
: not all programs. Try to find all your incarnations of texmf.cnf, you
: may have some other copies in directories under $HOME. Removing them
: and running mktexlsr may help, TeX will then find your original
: texmf.cnf from distro.

Thanks. I tried that. I found two of them and they were in
directories which were installed by MP Lib. They also had
the ~ patterns. It seems to confirm my suspision that
MP Lib is the ``culprit.''

Anyway, I've installed a new texmf.cnf and everything is grand.

Thanks again!
