FYI, TL'09 should not require admin privileges to function properly
with default installation settings.

This might be a problem. TL'07 used to set a bunch of environment
variables, I don't have a list though. TL'09 does not set
(permanently) anything in the environment (with the exception of
PATH), so anything starting with TEX or TL does not belong to TL'09*.
