>Summary: pdftex 1.40.6: "invalid argument" on parsing pdftex.map

Initial Comment:
Using an admittedly quite old pdftex.map, pdftex 1.40.5
would product correct output but pdftex 1.40.6 fails to
parse the map file.  pdftex.map is attached; here is
interactive output:

\begin{document}

Hello.

I've now tried using a much simpler map file, but that
didn't help.  Here what strace says, at the end of reading
the map file:

read(7, "wncysc10.pfb\nwncyss10 <wncyss10."..., 4096) = 783
read(7, "", 4096)                       = 0
close(7)                                = 0
munmap(0xb7fdc000, 4096)                = 0
write(1, "}", 1})                        = 1
brk(0x835e000)                          = 0x835e000
brk(0x838e000)                          = 0x838e000
write(6, "%PDF-1.4\n%\320\324\305\330\n3 0 obj
<<\n/Lengt"..., 156) = 156
write(2, "pdflatex: ", 10pdflatex: )              = 10
write(2, "Invalid argument\n", 17Invalid argument
)      = 17
write(5, "\relax \n", 8)               = 8
write(4, "This is pdfTeX, Version 3.141592"..., 1511) = 1511
exit_group(1)                           = ?

Minimal test file and log from pdftex 1.40.5 are added below.

I can't reproduce this; I can compile sample2e.tex with this
map file. Please attach a (minimal) test file. Also the log
of 1.40.5 for this file would be helpful.
