Hi Wolfgang,

         weave tex.web tex.ch tex.tex
         tex tex.tex
    will stop with:
         Runaway argument?

Doesn't happen for me with TL's tex.ch (and tex.web :)
and the new webmac.tex.

   ! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [main memory size=30001].

Seems like a small number for TeX memory. My "tex tex" run, with
\tracingstats=1, reports:
  32556 words of memory out of 5000000

So I surmise you need to increase your memory size. --best, karl.
