Thanks for sending the test files, which I have received.

However, I see that it is not a minimal test file. In particular, it
contains the makepdf script which does some things, and even the xii

Is it possible for you to prepare the SIMPLE latex test file, which
shows the buggy behavior when it is processed by pdflatex?

I.e., please prepare the latex source file, e.g. test.tex, which
should be processed. Please avoid usage of any scripts like makepdf or
executables like "xii". If you need any additional latex packages
(*.sty files), it's OK to include them, but having to depend on some
scripts or executables makes analysing the problem harder.
