Thanks for checking. This is weird. I tried it on 2 different computers
and it is not processed. I see the lyxpreview*.tex but no lyxpreview*.log.
After closing the document I see on the terminal the message
"ForkedProcess::kill(0)", meaning that lyx thinks the preview process is
still running and tries to kill it.
