Attached as .gz.

However I have discovered that my original problem is due to having
in the class file that I was using. When I remove this, pdflatex no
longer invokes mktextfm to make the ecrm1200 font files. It's
presumably obsolete now anyway. (It had been there for a long time.)

That works, and shows that the duplicated lines came from cmbright.map.
Disabling that entry cures the problem. I do use cmbright for some
purposes, but it seems to get picked up from somewhere else.

Thanks again for your very helpful advice.
