Hehe, the good old TeX book ;) I haven't open it in years but I did to
check your quote ^W^W^W^W for fun :) I had enough remembering of the
good old days to press return knowing TeX will try to proceed. My best
guess is that somehow a '.aux' file has been broken but... Why only for
some branches and not others ? The fallout was that it blocked the
cronjob for the first branch and the other branches (we build the docs
for bzr.dev, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4 and 2.5) were not processed at all
leading to several broken or outdated pages.

Yeah, obviously. The issue here is that LaTeX is run by sphinx (so we
don't really control the style file used) and without a better
understanding of what happened, it's hard to report a bug...

Thanks for the hint anyway,
