today I wanted to use a symbol of the wasysym-package. I have never used
this package before.
After compilation Yap did not show the currect symbol, but replaced it by a
character of a "standard" font. pdflatex, by the way, did find the font and
acroread displayed the correct symbol at once.
I solved the problem by updating the file name database (FNDB).
I am not lucky if it is alway necessary to update the FNDB to use a font
with YAP for the first time. Especially I get no error message, when a
missing font is replaced. I have to remark it myself.
Is this behaviour a bug or do I have a problem with my installation
("missing" fonts have been created in localtexmf-tree).
Thanks for help.
