I ran this on my local copy with the latest Aleph (the one that
will be in the next TeXLive) and this is fixed (it was due to
the interaction between \char and OTPs which we discussed; now
\char's do not get into OTPs). The strange thing is that the
dollar thing is not fixed. I would have expected the $ thing to
do the same, but it didn't. Still looking for the reason.
