I presume its the restricted epstopdf which cannot stomp all over the filesystem...

But then \usepackage{epstopdf} shouldn't try to use it if it has been removed - if, indeed, \usepackage{epstopdf} is what has triggered the message.

I certainly didn't explicitly use repstopdf, and something in texlive is trying to use it, even though it is not there.
