OK, this I cannot really understand..
Basically, I use
scite that calls a
lua script, and through that,
scite is ran from a terminal, then the
pdflatex output called through it is dumped to the same terminal, and then one can also interact with
pdflatex, in case of errors)
Today, I added to one of my files:
\showthe\paperheight \showthe\pdfpageheight \showthe\paperwidth \showthe\pdfpagewidth
... and I'd run
pdflatex as usual - and I'd notice this in the log:
? > 0.0pt. l.6 \showthe\paperheight ? > 845.04684pt. l.7 \showthe\pdfpageheight ? > 0.0pt. l.8 \showthe\paperwidth ? > 597.50787pt. l.9 \showthe\pdfpagewidth
pdflatex kept on going, and all was fine.
Then, I keep working - and suddenly,
pdflatex does not run over the
\showthe commands anymore; instead, it starts waiting for a user input! Here I'd answer with 'scroll', i.e.
? > 845.04684pt. l.7 \showthe\pdfpageheight ? S OK, entering \scrollmode... > 0.0pt. l.8 \showthe\paperwidth > 597.50787pt. l.9 \showthe\pdfpagewidth
... and then it would run through the end!
Now, I am forced to call
pdflatex -interaction=scrollmode file.tex ...
... so as to cause
pdflatex to 'run through' these commands - but now I'm afraid it will not stop on some more serious error (where I'd otherwise prefer it to stop).
Does anyone have an idea about what happened here - and how do I get my old
pdflatex behavior back?

Thanks in advance,
