Which verison of updmap was that? THe one from tlpretest from yesterday
or the one from a few days ago?

The reason is, when I do the same on Unix I see:
$ updmap-sys --enable Map=tu.map
updmap is using the following updmap.cfg files (in precedence order):
Creating new config file /home/norbert/tl/2012/texmf-config/web2c/updmap.cfg
dvips output dir: "/home/norbert/tl/2012/texmf-var/fonts/map/dvips/updmap"
pdftex output dir: "/home/norbert/tl/2012/texmf-var/fonts/map/pdftex/updmap"

and all is fine, no problem, with a very similar setup.

I don't see why it dies on you in the 
function ...

Can you reproduce this behaviour? If yes, can you do the following:
Edit the c:/Programme/texlive/2012/texmf/scripts/tetex/updmap.pl
around line 1198, in the 
	sub enable_disable_maps {
that it looks like this:

sub enable_disable_maps {
  my (@what) = @_;
  my $tc = $alldata->{'changes_config'};
  if (!defined($alldata->{'updmap'}{$tc})) {
    print STDERR "$prg: top config file $tc has not been read.\n";
    print STDERR "$prg: currently read config files:\n";
    for my $f (keys %{$alldata->{'updmap'}}) {
      print STDERR "$prg:    $f\n";
    die "$prg: good bye."
  my $changed = 0;
  for my $w (@what) {

and reproduce and send me the output. Thanks.

Best wishes
