I removed it, and now instead of producing an error on a \mathbb within the first few pages, the LaTeX compiler processes probably hundreds of \mathbb before stopping on a \mathbb on page 67 with a similar error message. > > > Adding the line > > \usepackage{bm} > > at the end of the font-loading macros makes that message go away in the cases where \boldsymbol provokes the error.

Taking away all references to \boldsymbol does not completely solve the problem anyway. Here's another (bizarre) clue. This is a minimal example of the new location in the document that I'm getting that error message. The preamble \documentclass[11pt]{memoir} \renewcommand{\ttdefault}{lmtt} \usepackage[frak=boondox,bb=boondox,cal=boondoxo]{mathalfa} \usepackage{MinionPro} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} is constant in the following examples. The following gives \reserved at b ->\relax … error (on the last line before \end{document}. The align* environment actually isn't crucial to the error, but I'm showing to give the context of "\text{( by continuity of\psi$)}" to which this error message is dependent upon. \begin{document}$\mathbb{F}{\allowdisplaybreaks \begin{align*} A &= B &&\text{( by (iii) )}\\ &= C &&\text{( by continuity of\psi)}\\ &= D. \end{align*} }\mathbb{P}. \end{document} The following examples typeset. \begin{document} {\allowdisplaybreaks \begin{align*} A &= B &&\text{( by (iii) )}\\ &= C &&\text{( by continuity of\psi)}\\ &= D. \end{align*} }\mathbb{P}$. \end{document} %********************************************* \begin{document}$\mathbb{F}{\allowdisplaybreaks \begin{align*} A &= B &&\text{( by (iii) )}\\ &= C &&\text{( by continuity of\psi)}\\ &= D. \end{align*} } \end{document} %************************************************* \begin{document}\mathbb{F}{\allowdisplaybreaks \begin{align*} A &= B &&\text{( by (iii) )}\\ &= C &&\text{( by continuity of X)}\\ % changed\psito X &= D. \end{align*} }\mathbb{P}$. \end{document} %******************************************************* \begin{document}$\mathbb{P}$. \text{by continuity of$\psi$}$\mathbb{P}$. \end{document} %*********************************************************** \begin{document}$\text{by continuity of $\psi$}\mathbb{P}$. \end{document} %********************************************************** \begin{document}$\mathbb{P}$.$\text{by continuity of $\psi$}$\end{document} %**************************************************** The following example gives the \reserved at b ->\relax … error: \begin{document}$\mathbb{P}$.$\text{by continuity of $\psi$}$%An above example removed the outer$ and typeset
$\mathbb{P}$.
