    In tex.web error message is shown to the user right
    before exiting:

Yes, it is inconsistent. We sent your report about it to Knuth in the
last bundle. He is simply not bothered by this and has declined to
change it (among a number of other such inconsistencies).

I guess it may be worth adding to my nobug page. --best, karl.
