[texhax] inconsistency between pdftex and tex

I just found a minor inconsistency which probably should be fixed at
some time in the future.  I am using the TeX live distribution,
version 7 on a linux system running redhat 7.3.

I have a latex file whose first line is "%&latex".  If I run this with
tex it reads the latex format file.  If I run it with pdftex it
doesn't and I have to use pdflatex.
