Thanks for the information.

And what should you do to get the same behaviour if you use TeXShop ?  
(Same question for pdflatex or tex+ghostscript ?)

English language question : what do you mean by `sensible', applied  
to a pdf file ? What is the difference with `sensitive' ? In French,  
the two words are almost synonymous. For differential equations, you  
can say "sensible aux conditions initiales".
