Ok, so let's try a version without a tilde then:



test1.tex
Description: LaTeX document

It makes no difference for me: running texi2dvi test1.tex ends with

Package rerunfilecheck Warning: File test1.out' has changed.
(rerunfilecheck)                Rerun to get outlines right
(rerunfilecheck)                or use package bookmark'.

but does not re-run.  Running texi2dvi test1.tex once more succeeds.

This is with

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.16 (TeX Live 2015/Debian)
restricted \write18 enabled.
entering extended mode
LaTeX2e <2016/02/01>

as currently shipped in Debian testing.

If you still cannot reproduce, perhaps we should start by comparing TeX
and system versions?
