If I understand it, your method works with \include{FILE}. Does it  
work with \input{FILE}?  Ross Moore's code of 1/24/07 works very well  
with \input and I've been using it since (thanks Ross!). However, I  
use this in a root file with lots of \input (not \include). BTW,  
Ross' code will not work with \include --it returns the root file  
instead of the \include'd file.
