A Texinfo user told me about this bug report filed with Debian, seems
like it belongs here with Olaf ...

(texi2dvi doesn't use -interaction, so I'm not sure what's up with that.)


Retrieving report #209347 from Debian bug tracking system...
Original report - #209347: latex / texi2dvi conflict for interactive or batch mo

Date: Tue, 09 Sep 2003 15:11:00 +0200

Package: tetex-bin
Version: 2.0.2-4.3
Distribution: unstable

This also has something to do with the texinfo (4.6-1) package.

When run with the -file-line-error-style option, latex switches to batch mode,
even if you explicitely require otherwise with the -interaction option.

This problem breaks the (abscence of the) --batch option of texi2dvi which
uses -file-line-error-style when available.
