I'm not sure if the protocol is to edit my previous post amsart/amsbook with non-default glossary style to add this question, but it is certainly related.

There seems to be another conflict between the AMS document classes and the glossary package, which occurs when the glossary runs to more than one page. The error is:

! Undefined control sequence.
<argument> \glossarytoctitle

Here's the MWE. (I say `minimal': there might be a few more lines than needed, but it's minimal in complexity.)

IMO, it was correct to ask a new question, as the two issues, though both being conflicts between amsbook and glossaries, are not related. – lockstep Aug 10 '12 at 12:43

I don't really know why the error is raised; you can correct it by saying


after loading glossaries.

Brilliant, thank you. – paul Aug 10 '12 at 12:37
