But then (usually it seems) after a ***long*** while and repeated
everything suddenly works! I then get:
If you haven't figured it out by now ...
I suspect it's searching your whole filesystem, due to some sort of
envvar missetting, of, say, BSTINPUTS. You could run
env KPATHSEA_DEBUG=-1 bibtex demo >/tmp/out 2>&1
And get voluminous debugging output. What's in there should show the
path that bibtex is using for BSTINPUTS and why it's doing what it's
Hope this helps,
