Thanks.  I upgraded libkpathsea4 first, with no problems, and then
tetex-bin (I had to upgrade tex-common first).  I still got lots of
syslog output, so I then re-installed the new tetex-bin (to ensure
we're using all the new binaries), and the same happened.  Watching
that install with xconsole next to the xterm I was using showed that
the accesses to /share all happened during the following stages:

| Running fmtutil-sys. This may take some time... done.
| Running updmap-sys. This may take some time... done.

Both these programs are part of tetex-bin, so the install should be
using the new ones by that stage - unless there's some conffile I need
to check?

(P.S. forgot to mention that something in cron.daily has this effect, too)
