[texhax] can't find input file?

I've been working on a tex file recently that makes use of two style
files, one of which loads the other. I want to use these style files
for other tex files, so this morning I tried putting them some place
on my system where they'd be located automatically by my latex
installation (I'm using MacTex 2009).
I can't be sure, but it seems like as soon as I moved the style files,
I started getting the error that LaTeX couldn't find my input file
(called "northern.tex" in this case). Not that it couldn't find my
style files, but the input file itself. I assumed the error message
was borked somehow and continued moving the style files to various
places around my system and messing with environment variables.
Nothing worked, so I put the style files back in the directory with
the input file. Same error. The input file is very obviously there,
and not empty, and yet both Auctex via Emacs and the command line say
they can't find the input file. I've removed the \usepackage commands
and all custom commands from the input file, so it's basically just a
standard LaTeX file with nothing but text. Same error with XeTeX and
LaTeX. Here's the XeTeX log output:

How can it reach end of file when the file's right there in the
