  As an afterthought: For testing XeTeX, the workaround with setting
avoids messages about boxes, so XeTeX won't run into the loop trying to
output the box in textual form.  For obvious reasons, I wouldn't use
these commands for production typesetting. :-)

  Is this the loop you were referring to or is there yet another one I am
blissfully unaware of?
