# \pagestyle{ruled} adds superfluous text in glossary

I'm writing my thesis using the memoir package, using \pagestyle{ruled}, and have created glossaries for a glossary and an acronym list. The resulting pdf, contains the superfluous text "Glossary" and "Acronyms" right below the chapter headings of the same name.

I use latexmk to build the pdf, using a custom .latexmkrc:

add_cus_dep('glo', 'gls', 0, 'makeglossaries');
sub makeglossaries {
system("makeglossaries '\$_[0]'");
}


Here is my minimal example:

\documentclass[a4paper]{memoir}
\usepackage[acronym,toc]{glossaries}
\makeglossaries
\pagestyle{ruled}
\newglossaryentry{UML}{name={UML},description={definition}}
\newacronym{XML}{XML}{Extensible Markup Language}
\begin{document}
\chapter{Intro}
text \gls{XML}
\gls{UML}
\printglossaries
\end{document}


Removing the \pagestyle{ruled} line removes the extra text. How do I get rid of the extra text, while still using a ruled pagestyle?

Issue \pagestyle{ruled} before loading the glossaries package. (I've tested my solution with a glossary with about 30 entries, and its page style is indeed ruled.)

Partial explanation: Both memoir and glossaries define the \glossarymark macro. glossaries adds some compatibility code in case memoir is used, and so it seems the sensible thing to choose a page style first and then let glossaries do its work.

\documentclass[a4paper]{memoir}
\pagestyle{ruled}
\usepackage[acronym,toc]{glossaries}
\makeglossaries
\newglossaryentry{UML}{name={UML},description={definition}}
\newacronym{XML}{XML}{Extensible Markup Language}
\begin{document}
\chapter{Intro}
text \gls{XML}
\gls{UML}
\printglossaries
\end{document}

Yay! It works, thanks. BTW: It does not work when the \pagestyle{ruled} command is invoked again after the \usepackage{glossaries}. – daniel kullmann Sep 18 '11 at 11:15
Is there any other caveat letting you load glossaries before the \pagestyle command? – rowman Feb 5 '13 at 15:43
@rowman None that I know of. OTOH, the one at hand is big enough. ;-) – lockstep Feb 5 '13 at 15:45
As a note, version 3.17a or later of glossaries has this fixed. – bombcar Apr 10 '14 at 15:46
