RE: tetex 3.0.0-3 format file problem

please respond]

> Jan, can you provide any insight here?

Apologies if this is unnecessary, but by way of clarification
to my previous message:

*   teTeX is working fine for me now (I can't of course speak for
    "m. z.".

*   The problems I had been having, as it turned out, were not
    cygwin-specific, but turned on generic teTeX issues (so, I'm
    afraid, the whole thread's OT).

*   The problems, as it turned out, arose from no defect in the
    programs but my local teTeX administration.

Also, by way of correction:  as I should have seen from my own
message 789, the "pdfetex thang" bit me not because of local
configuration files, but because I had an old 'latex.fmt' in my
local tree.

A draft morals list:

*   Once you customize a config file or install stuff in your
    local tree, you own its maintenance forever.

*   In particular, expect breakage between teTeX 2 and teTeX 3.

*   Even more particularly, expect breakage from old versions of
    'texmf.cnf' and '*.fmt'.
