| Hi,
| This was reported on the XeTeX mailing list but I'm reposting here since I think it's more appropriate for this list. (Fixes to pdfTeX can then propagate to the other engine(s).)
| Here's a minimal example:
| \def\a{\ifincsname T \else F \fi}
| \expandafter\string\csname
|     1\a
|     \expandafter\string\csname2\a\endcsname
|     3\a
| \endcsname
| #1 and #2 are "true" but #3 is "false". It seems like the first \endcsname has reset the "am i in a csname" switch rather than popped it back to its previous value.
| Cheers,
| -- Will
