Interesting. Because the actual content is placed on the page
during  hyperref's  \ReadBookmarks  command, where it reads in
the \jobname.out  file --- which seems to be completely empty.

\@filef at und ->beam-test.out 
{the character @}
{horizontal mode: the character @}
{blank space  }

When reading the input stream, a single line-end character might 
be generated at the start ?
But that still leaves open the question of how it picks up
the character string '@safe at act' .
Maybe it all happens internally and there is a buffer overrun?

This happens twice within  \ReadBookmarks .

Yes; I found this was necessary too.

I think that it is up to Jonathan and Heiko to figure out
why their coding creates this kind of undesirable interaction.
