Comment 1 Jindrich Novy 2007-06-05 08:31:17 UTC
The tex ends up with exit code 1 when it encounters an error during processing
of a source file to notify the batch job above it that it shouldn't expect a
valid output. Are you sure you have all the macros properly defined?

Comment 2 Stepan Kasal 2007-06-06 13:08:49 UTC
Jindrich Novy asked an interesting irrelevant question:
> Are you sure you have all the macros properly defined?

Well, when I first experienced the bug, I was using LaTeX.  So I cannot
guarantee that "all the macros" there were properly defined.

But the stripped down reproducer above uses only plain.tex, which is the most
reviewed and most debugged source file in the whole Fedora, I guess.
