[latexrefman] jobname

Hello Jim,

I tried this :

pdflatex '\documentclass{article}\usepackage{lipsum}\input titi'

and the jobname was named texput, not titi. I tried both with MiKTeX
and TeXLive.

the content of titi.tex was just this :

Bonjour \lipsum[1]

So it seems this has changed again … It is as if the \documentclass
command is doing something that freezes the jobname to its current
value so that subsequent \input cannot change it.
