Dear Philip,
    Many thanks for your prompt reply.
    I am enclosing a copy of the file which is causing problems, together with a file of definitions that I always use,
which will be needed to compile my file.

/Ex nihilo/, they are fine; I imagine that it is in the context in
which they are being used.  Strip down your code to the shortest
complete TeX program that demonstrates the problem, then post
it here : someone will then be able to explain the source of the problem.
