Dear pdflatex maintainers,

there seems to be a bug in pdflatex (using Mac OS10.7.5, further version
details below). Try to run the attached tex source with this command, and
it will not stop:

pdflatex -interaction=nonstopmode endlessloop.tex

(In line 24, there is an additional } after n_2 that needs to be deleted.)
