I just signed up to the list and didn't get any mails, so I checked 
the archive and copied the answer from there replying to an existing 
mail, that surely mixed up the headers - sorry. I now deactivated 
digest mode so everything should be fine. Sometimes I ask myself, 
whether newsgroups would be better - sadly this type of knowledge 
transfer seems to gradually fade away, replaced by forums (or in this 
case: mailing lists).

That's what I thought at first, so I trashed the PDF - still it got 
somehow "reproduced". Now I see why: When changing to 
TeX+Ghostscript, simpdftex is called and somehow this calls pdfeTeX 
which directly produces the PDF and no DVI file. Do I have to add any 
specific options to remove all usepackage pdftex-options?
