If I patch \sidefloatoutput (page-sid.tex) like so:

-           \vadjust{\penalty\minusone}%
+           \ifinner\else \vadjust{\penalty\minusone}\fi

it runs without error. It looks like the side float output routine
is called in the middle of this math display:

   a-b+c-d+f-g+h-e\equiv1\ (\mod 3),
   which shows that all vertices cannot be made multiples of~3

I think my patch somewhat odd, but at least it does not crash and I fear
that the sidefloat output in this case (a float next to a display that
forces a page break) is somewhat undefined anyway.

Best wishes,
