I can't reproduce this:
--------------------------
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.141592-1.40.0-beta-20060811 (Web2C 7.5.5)
entering extended mode
(./loop.tex [1{/home/ms/.texmf-var/fonts/map/pdftex/updmap/pdftex.map}] )</opt/
tex/share/texmf-dist/fonts/type1/bluesky/cm/cmr10.pfb>
Output written on loop.pdf (1 page, 3992 bytes).
Transcript written on loop.log.
