Could you point me toward teTeX-beta, TeXlive7, or pdfTeX 1.10a?  I don't
find them off of the teTeX home page (http://tug.cs.umb.edu/tetex/).

Also, pdftex and pdflatex are in the teTeX distribution.  Is pdfTeX a
separate distribution?  I don't know much about TeX, but I'd like to know

Thanks, I'll bet this is what's going on as I'm generating a large manual
from doxygen-generated latex.  It works for small trees but not for large
ones.  And teTeX 1.0.7 ignores "obj_tab_size = 300000", only using 20000.
