I had this problem too. As my table of contents is long, I don't use paneltoc
\tableofcontents \hypertarget{contents}{}
as in "pythagore" (an other exemple on melusine).

good idea

sometimes TeXShop does not give anything the first time and acrobat 
does ; next time
TeXShop works again. ????

I made my own quiz and the last problem is \{

\{ is correct if I don't use exerquiz. If I use it \{ is not correct 
even outside of the quiz.

many thanks
