[tex-live] arial.pfb and times.pfb in arabi.map cause dvips failures

    texlive-2009 enables arabi.map by default. This map references
    arial.pfb and times.pfb, 

I agree that arabi.map should not do that.  Can you please write the
arabi author (Youssef Jabri, yjabri (at) ensa.univ-oujda.ac.ma) about it?

    apparently dvips doesn't remove the DocumentSuppliedFonts list from
    the DocumentFonts list before looking for external fonts.

You mean it shouldn't look for the DocumentSuppliedFonts?  I suppose
that's so.

    after disabling arabi.map the dvi file can be processed by dvips, but
    gives warnings.

Is the dvips output (without arabi.map) correct?  The warnings are just
warnings, after all.

Thanks for the report.
