indeed it isn't.  i hope the op is listening :-)

however, the "snare and delusion" that i talked about, on ctan,
produces exactly the symptom reported.

i've moved the more recent of the two(!) instances of nar.sty on ctan
to the obsolete/ tree, and deleted the other.

which leaves a slot for you to submit your working version, should you
fancy the idea.  (see http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=uploads)

narfront.cls seems to be an elsevier ripoff; it points at your web
site: is it in any way official?
