Hi Victor,

In principle I could take the sources from your home directory and produce 
a small test file for you. But in practice that will have to wait until I 
have some spare time, which may be a very long time as you know how busy 
my schedule is. So it would be much faster if you do it yourself. Your 
test case should be self-contained, i.e. it should compile without any 
need for any external packages, except those which are normally present in 
TeX Live distribution.

Also, it would be nice if you could reproduce the problem without using 
Russian as some of the developers may not like having to edit text files 
encoded in cp1251.

Kind regards,
