For sure it is not a powerdot > problem as it is not reproducible in miktex. And, as I mentioned in my first reply: powerdot styles are using pifont for years already. If it would have been a powerdot problem, someone would have noticed before you, don't you think...? I didn't say that for nothing. That's for you to realize that it is not a powerdot problem. And that's why I told you to try reinstalling the system to see if that helps. If you can't solve it by reinstalling the system, contact texlive about the problem. -Hendri.
