That is true, and is also documented in the script itself. IIRC, the
same thing happened with the old script as well, didn't it?
I don't have a working TeX installation on Windows at hand ATM, so how
are such files specified in the log file? Is there any way to uniquely
distinguish them from a filename (without extension?) followed by a space?

Cheers,
