I don't think so.  The latest log file that you posted still showed 
errors suggesting a corrupt pdftex.map file.  My guess is that you 
didn't delete all the corrupt files from your first installation before 


Maybe the installation instructions should give the user some advice 
about what to do if their installation becomes corrupt and they have to 
reinstall.  Here are two things that come to mind:

1. If your installation becomes corrupt and you decide to reinstall, be 
sure to completely remove your old installation first.  For example:

 > rm -rf /usr/local/texlive/2009
 > rm -rf ~/.texlive2009

2. If you have an unreliable network connection, you probably shouldn't 
try to install the full scheme right away.  You can always get it later 
by running 'tlmgr install scheme-full'.
