	Workaround a TeX bug: --file-line-error-style '\nonstopmode'
	does not honor the non stop mode request.

With what version of TeX?  Seems to work for me ...

  $ tex --file-line-error '\nonstopmode\input story'
  This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (Web2C 7.3.7x)

  (/usr/local/texlive8/texmf/tex/plain/base/story.tex [1])
  ! Emergency stop

If the \nonstopmode hadn't taken effect, I would have been given the *
prompt for input.

            pass '--interaction=nonstopmode'.

I don't think this is a good idea. --interaction is a fairly recent
option, I believe.  Maybe we just shouldn't use --file-line-error in
