Often the cause is that the (new) picture is bigger than the page size. Scale it down.

How about putting a clearpage command in a suitable place before. This will output all not processed floats!

The context for this is too large to reproduce, but I hope I can get some ideas how to either resolve the problem or work around it.

In a book-length document with many pictures, done either using pstricks or pst3d-solides, I replaced one float with a more complicated one involving subfig (and using pst3d-solides).
On its own (ie, in a stand-alone file), this float works fine, but when inserted in the larger project (in place of a float which previously was totally unproblematic) the processing stops---quite a few pages and floats later---with the error message
Latex error: too many unprocessed floats.

When I comment out this new float, everything works fine.

Does anyone have a clue as to what is going on, and more important, any idea for how to handle it?  I realize the question is an abstract one, but I have no idea how to create a minimal example to show what is happening.

Subject: [texhax] Help with footnotes
Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=US-ASCII; format=flowed

Can someone suggest a good macro package for flexible footnotes?  I have 
translated a long article that has many chapters and many footnotes.  I 
need a second set of footnotes for translators notes, which I will number 
alphabetically.  I have done that, using something of a kludge, but two 
problems remain.  First the book style starts the footnote numbering over 
for each chapter.  The original didn't and I wish to preserve his 
numbering.  Secondly, he has one footnote numbered 2bis; it appears, of 
course between 2 and 3.  Does any package give that much flexibility?  If 
not, I may have to use plain's footnotes.

Is there a way to get a grid pattern on a rectangle without getting  
numerical labels for the lines?
I am trying to use pstricks to create a rectangle with a grid that  
will resemble a plane embedded in 3-space in another, pst3d-solides  
picture;  the latter will have the pattern of object=grille.  However,  
I don't want explicit labels assigning numerical coordinates to the  
grid lines.
