Micha, you just don't seem to understand.  TeX (like every other 
programming language) never "behaves as 'intended'" — it does /exactly/ 
what you tell it to do, neither more, nor less.  It cannot read your 
mind.  It cannot know what you /intend. /All it knows it what you have 
told it to do.  And (especially in TeX's case), it does that to 
perfection and in a totally predictable and repeatable way.
