It's actually a different message but occurring at the same line (#

You'll notice the xkeyval package is no longer read. The new error  
("Missing \begin{document}") is generally what's got when asking  
LaTeX to process a file whose name contains a space. That doesn't  
seem the case here.

I'm a bit puzzled by the differences between /usr/local/teTeX/ and / 
Volumes/WaUser/teTeX/. Do you have two TeX trees, one on your hard  
drive and one on another mounted volume? It looks like LaTeX is  
picking up files at random between these two locations. Hence  
possible incompatibilities between different versions of LaTeX  
packages on the two volumes.

It's difficult to diagnose what's wrong without knowing what's inside  
your file. Could you send it off-list?
