Indeed … sometimes.

Is this a good place to fill a bug report? I've had inconsistent 
behavior, I believe, but further test is needed…

I should have thought of that! (Actually, I tried, but there was a .dvi 
in the batch that made everything crash, I believe).

Can you load pdf files from the command line, using e.g.

tellico my-document.pdf

? I've had crashes with all the files I've tried. I was hoping to do the 
traversal of my folders using some macros and the command-line.
