I've tracked down where I've seen this error before and edited it in to the question.

There's also a space at the beginning. I tried \xspace but that didn't work, \ignorespaces did, though.

comment Alignment of equals sign in multiple align environments
@Villemoes: Very useful to know; I rarely use \intertext because of the excessive spacing.

comment Compile a LaTeX document into a PNG image that's as short as possible
@Bruce: The manpage for pdftoppm says that you can specify the resolution by using the argument -r RES. The default is 150DPI so experiment with that to find one that you like.

comment Is it feasible to create a standalone package for fonts / styles / layouts?
@Debilski: I might have misunderstood your comment. The current folder (ie where you run latex from) is always in the search path (as are any subdirectories, I think). The point of the TEXMFHOME stuff is to have a central place where all your class and style and stuff files reside so that you don't need to branch them in to the current folder each time. (I'm no expert on the search paths, for that you should ask a new question.)

comment Is it feasible to create a standalone package for fonts / styles / layouts?
@Debilski: You can mess around with TEXMFHOME (see the question linked by Matthew in his comment to Ulrike's answer). Or you can make your TEXMFHOME directory the repository directly - there's nothing wrong with this. I was just describing what I do to show that there's no inherent difficulties with the scheme. Of course, there are variations.

Tamas: I've taken the liberty of simplifying your code to get to the heart of the issue, but I added it rather than modifying what is already there. Hope that's okay!

comment Is there a package to write slide and narration contents at the same time but produces each separately at the final?
As Martin says below, this is possible using the Article Mode where it is possible to divide your document into "stuff inside frames" and "stuff outside frames" and process the two separately. However, that's not quite the scheme you describe as both your sets of stuff are inside frames. If that is what you want, it would be very easy to implement but I don't know of a package that already does it.

comment How to present a vertical multiplication/addition
@Jan: Thank you very much! You've just saved me hours on my lecture preparation time! (Well, maybe I exaggerate, but not by much. I use octave to generate/check that my matrices are sensible but then have to retype it in to the lecture risking copying errors. This will mean I stop making them, or stop making so many.)
