xetex "Summary II"
xetex "Summary II.tex"
work fine for me on i386-linux. But they do indeed fail for me on
universal-darwin; I get
! I can't find file Summary II.texTEXMF"'
instead of SELFAUTOPARENT, but same difference.
I doubt it is anything about texmf.cnf; can't imagine what it would be.
My guess is that there is some kind of strange bug in the space-handling
code and/or mallocs, and it gets exposed on macosx for some reason.
Or else a compiler bug. Dick, can you reproduce? Can you try compiling
without any optimization?
