Hi Jerome,

I suppose this is related to the synctex/pdfxform bug. TIA :).

    can I assume that \pdfxform are shipped out at the very end of a
    regular page 

I don't know. As far as I can see from a quick look at the sources, it's
shipped out as a whatsit, in which case I suppose other whatsits could
come after it. I don't know if \immediate\pdfxform (to ship it out in
the midst of a page) does anything, or if that case matters.

I hope one of the many other people on this list who knows more than me
about pdftex behavior can answer you more definitively.

    and that it will be the case in the future or so ?

Whatever the behavior is now, I do not foresee it ever changing. -k
