[tex-live] Bug report: map file entries for Bookman

Dear Tex Live maintainers,

the map files


contain one exceptional line, where two encodings for a single font are 

pbkdo8y URWBookmanL-DemiBold ".167 SlantFont TeXnANSIEncoding 
ReEncodeFont" <texnansi.enc <8r.enc <ubkd8a.pfb

This does not immediately cause problems in TeX but it does in other 
software (matplotlib, http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/, which could 
produce figures with TeX labels, if it would not trip over the double 

Since this line is the only one in all my .map files which contains two 
encodings, and the other Bookman entries are fine, I think that this is 
probably a bug.

I think that I've read about this somewhere in the internet a while ago 
but cannot find it any more. Hence, I don't deserve credit for finding 
the bug, but could you nevertheless correct it and remove the "<8r.enc" 
from the map files?

Thank you,

Daniel Müllner
