While we are at it, here's one for Herb. Sometimes when I make  
changes to a non-master source and try Cmd-T or even Cmd-S followed  
by Cmd-T (when using pdflatexmk via TeXShop), I get a message saying  
that <...>.pdf is up to date. I have to make an artificial change in  
the TeX-master file to force a recompile. Have others run into this?
