Thanks, I'll have a look at it.

@JosephWright: thank you, this was the root of the issue. Turns out I dismissed some of the evidence as insignificant, and incorrectly stated that I have not changed the system. I will create an answer now, for posterity.

Yes, it persists after I remove all the temp files. Speaking of XeLaTeX, I tried it as well, and it shows the same error.

No, I've never used it. Could you elaborate? From its documentation it is not clear why I should set it to anything.

comment What is the right way of creating bilingual book with poetry?
Sorry, Maieul, and thanks for your offer, but unfortunately I'm quite busy now and can't dig up that project and try to reproduce the bug (which I've successfully worked around in a way that I actually like more :)

comment What is the right way of creating bilingual book with poetry?
Initially I wanted to have commentaries for stanzas arranged as in books.google.com.au/…, for example. But since I couldn't get it to work I ended up doing it like this: scribd.com/doc/40146250/Poetic-Edda-Old-Norse-English-diglot (github.com/Manticore/poetic_edda for code).

comment Conditioning behaviour of a macro on whether on top of a new page
By the way, this approach does not work if \text is longtable (probably because of the interference of hacks, as usual). Is there some other solution?

comment How to make longtable respect \nopagebreak in the beginning?
Just in case: as a workaround I just put section header in the first line of the table and use \\* longtable macro (which prevents line break inside the table). A bit ugly, but works.

comment Is it possible to add \chapter after a few \part's at the same level of hierarchy?
Thank you, both of your methods work. There is only one issue: no empty line between 'Fourth chapter' and 'Conclusion' in ToC (to visually separate them), which I fixed by adding \addtocontents{toc}{\protect\vspace*{\baselineskip}\protect} before \chapter{conclusion}.

\part* does not put the part in the ToC; and, moreover, I'd prefer a chapter, not a part.

comment How to place subfigure caption on the side?
As far as I understand, subcaption package only allows you to tune style, but not the relative position of the subcaption.

Thanks for the offer, Vafa, I filed the request: bitbucket.org/vafa/subfig/issue/1/… . I hope the description is clear.

comment “pdf_open: Not a PDF 1.[1-5] file.” when typesetting TeX file in TextMate
which rungs gives me /usr/texbin/rungs both in Terminal and TextMate, and echo $PATH results resemble Alan's too. Your minimal example typesets with the same error in TextMate (sorry, I should have provided such example myself). pdflatex (in TextMate) gives the following error !!! Error: Cannot open Ghostscript for piped input. Both xelatex and pdflatex successfully typeset this example from Terminal.

That's why I initially posted this question to superuser.com. No idea why it got migrated here.

comment What is the right way of creating bilingual book with poetry?
Yes, I am actually using this approach now. I played a little with macros and ledpar, but could not make all footnotes reside on the pages where they were referenced (even after playing with different weight coefficients), so I gave up and started using tables for stanzas and common text blocks for footnotes (I have lots of footnotes). This is actually a good thing, because ledmac conflicts with microtype package, and I would like to use it too.
