Hi Ken,

the changes I mentioned will be in tomorrow's rebuild (if successful).

If there are no lines to write, then updmap.cfg should still be written, with no map lines.  This can happen after the removal of packages, if there are no more packages left with map files.

Indeed, I was tracking this down myself this morning, but was derailed
by other things.

Thanks for the good analysis. I will fix it soon.
