I've had the texlive2012 installed since it came out and until a couple of
days ago everything worked just fine. All of a sudden, things changed. I did
nothing directly to the texlive distribution.
wwm@escherton$ context --version gives the error output at the end of this
wwm@escherton$ sudo context --version works just fine
wwm@escherton$ mtxrun --version works just fine as does mtxrun --script fonts
I created a new user.

I deleted the texlive distribution and re-installed it. No change. I've run
sudo context --generate several times with no change in behavior. I've
deleted the local .texlive2012 directory but since context won't run, it
doesn't get recreated. I can set TEXMF and then context will run but it takes
a much longer time than usual and the disk activity light is on almost solid.
1. Run mtxrun --generate as normal user followed by context --make;
2. Something is messed up in $HOME/texmf or $HOME/.texlive2012. Rename
these directories to something different and try again.
