You seem to have failed to read my preceding email.  Maybe you should
consider working on understanding basics of good communication -- see:

Better hint, Robin, my post wasn't any try to get help on such matter,
but to report an apparent bug.  Also, you may have had a look at the
"Subject" field of my message, which usually relates pretty good with
its contents: it mentions a problem with `\par', which you may have
addressed if you had tried to answer my email instead of trying to get
some potential newbie out.  Also, you may have found that my main point
was that the *parsing* (as in "mechanics") of the TeX file failed me.

You'd be kind enough not to answer again without having a look at my
first message.
