Hi Michael, could you please provide some sample code for testing of

LaTeX file that demonstrates pict2e

This LaTeX file contains a figure that is simply a diagonal line.  Processing
this file with the command latex with produce a warning about pict2e.  The
diagonal line in the figure should be several pixels wide.  However, since
pict2e is not used it is only one pixel wide.

This works fine with teTeX-3.0 now. Thanks for the report.
