[Tuglist] xtab problems.

    I have a document with a set of long tables which span multiple pages.
    I use the xtab package, to have these tables. The packages runs fine
    if there's one table. But if there's more than one table, I get an
    "undefined control sequence" warning. 

    Further the tables do not appear in the .ps file generated. What's
    wrong with two tables if one table is fine?

  EMANCIPATION, n.  A bondman's change from the tyranny of another to
  the despotism of himself.
      He was a slave:  at word he went and came;
          His iron collar cut him to the bone.
      Then Liberty erased his owner's name,
          Tightened the rivets and inscribed his own.
