I don't know what I was on last night but, this evening, it is still
not working properly. To save time and effort, I will first give a
new improved and minimal version of my first post:

I have the following setup for a MagnumOpus text that consists of one
included chapter called ONE. The setup allows me to typeset just one
chapter---here ONE.

A. In the Chapters-contents Folder, I have a "contents file", ONE.tex

%!TEX root = ../Chapters-controls/ONE.tex
\chapter{ONE is odd}
\minitoc
some text
\section{First}
a little bit of text

B. In the Chapters-controls Folder, I have a "control file", ONE.tex

\documentclass[11pt]{book}
\usepackage{minitoc}
\begin{document}
\dominitoc
\include{../Chapters-contents/ONE}
\end{document}

C. In the Text Folder, I have the master file, MagnumOpus.tex

\documentclass[11pt]{book}
\usepackage{minitoc}
\begin{document}
\dominitoc
\tableofcontents
\include{../Chapters-contents/ONE}
\end{document}

--- When I typeset (three times) the master file MagnumOpus.tex, I
get the mini toc in the chapter as expected.

--- When I typeset (either one of the two) ONE.tex, I get the pdf of
the chapter as usual, that is without the mini toc (even though the
mtc files are generated.)

Hopeful regards
