	The minimal class is OK for some purposes, but it outputs entire pages, rather than the solo graphic itself. Sometimes one wants just the graphic.

	It's not just standalone. I'm working on a paper in good ol' article class, and it throws the same error. pdflatexmk absolutely hates this.

> This is a TikZ/PGF bug, certainly. It also happens when using 'pdflatex -shell-escape'. The text of the error report comes from TikZ/PGF files. It can also be that the standalone class interferes here, so a test with a "normal" LaTeX class (minimal, article, report, …) can give a hint. With the minimal class no problem occurs, so it must be standalone that changes the process in an unexpected way.
