Aehmmmm.... your log file showed only that YOU did hit
(at least it looks like) while the formats were generated. There was no
cycle in the log you sent, nothing. You just interrupted the run. At
least that is what I deduce from that:

                                                  \relax \the

Mark the




Could it be that you were to hasty? (Gandalf: Not so hasty, Mr Frodo).
Recreating all formats *takes* quite some time if you have installed

If there is something else, please sent the correct log file excerpt,
but that what you sent looks completely normal, aside the interruption.
