    Dear TexLive folks,<br>
    <br>
    with my last TexLive update, obviously a new glitch in the rotating
    package has been introduced. All of the sudden a rather big document
    that used to compile almost perfectly before stopped with quite some
    weird error messages. These error messages are almost identical with
    those produced by this minimal example: <br>
    <br>
    <blockquote>\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article}<br>
      \usepackage{rotating}<br>
      \usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}<br>
      <br>
      \begin{document}<br>
      \begin{rotate}{20}<br>
      Test <br>
      \end{rotate}<br>
      \end{document}<br>
    </blockquote>
    The corresponding log reads as follows:<br>

    <style type="text/css">p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }</style>
