Is the error with "test_latex - Copy" reproducible even after you got it
to work in the other folders? I'm asking because I just now fixed a
problem which caused syntax highlighting not to appear if there was no
specific user setting (i.e., in particular with new installations).
In any case, it would be great if you could test the latest version I
just uploaded.
