This minimal example makes my latex/pdflatex from MiKTeX (or TeX Live of a colleague) crash:

\documentclass{revtex4-1}
\usepackage{dblfloatfix}
\begin{document}
Hello World!
\begin{figure}
\end{figure}
\end{document}

It writes out several 100 MB of log files until I force quit it. Why is this? Not using dblfloatfix, or using a different document class solves the problem, but not my use case.

I'm afraid that dblfloatfix is simply incompatible with revtex4-1 because the class redefines very thoroughly the figure environment. – egreg May 15 '13 at 22:48

Short answer: they are not compatible. REVTeX includes a lot of code, fixes for things, modifications, etc. It's therefore quite 'picky' about what it will and won't work with. I'm afraid you almost certainly just have to 'get on' with this.
