I'm not sure if there is a problem with the -f option; I guess I'd  
worry about an infinite loop if an error is critical but you've  
already run into that and the Abort button works just fine :-). If  
you run into that please let me know.

The added line should be

export BIBINPUTS=${BIBINPUTS}:`kpsewhich --show-path=bib | sed -e "s/ 

(notice the extra pipe to sed to clean out leading !! which only have  
meaning to kpsewhich). Time to update your engines again :-).

That's always nice to hear.

I still haven't played with rubber. I seem to get bogged down trying  
to add dependencies for some packages (e.g., multibib) that aren't  
supported by latexmk and the documentation seems a bit too vague for  
me to figure out how to do that. I think I've got to read more about  

Good Luck,
