One of my two tests is a slightly newer version of the mathematics
textbook that I sent you. I can send you the newer math textbook if
that's useful. Now that the Euler problem is fixed (see below), I'll
probably use Euler for the equations, so you'll have a test suite using
Palatino and Euler.
The other test is the physics textbook ("Art of Approximation"). The
physics textbook uses two Python scripts that I wrote plus mercurial.
If you don't mind testing Python as a side effect of testing the Debian
packages, I can send you a version of the physics textbook that still
uses Python but doesn't depend on mercurial (or I can send you the
vanilla version with all those deps).

that suggestion solved the problem. You can pass -recorder as follows:
texexec --passon=-recorder test.tex
pdftex then gets the -recorder option, and test.fls will have the magic info.
I did so and looked for any loaded files that begin with /home/sanjoy.
And found the culprit:
So I had an interfering version of math-eul.tex. When I deleted it, the
test file compiled fine. Sorry for the noise.
