# using easybmat and tikz packages together?

In continuation to this question, I was looking for a way to add nice diagonal lines inside a BMAT matrix to express a band structure of the matrix. However, a LaTeX file with both TikZ and easybmat fails to compile.

Is there anything I could do to have these two packages compile together?

Minimal example:

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article}

%\usepackage{easybmat}
%\usepackage{tikz}

\begin{document}
This document fails to compile if you remove both percent
signs. Remove any one of them and it compiles fine.
\end{document}

add \usepackage{etex}
