                Severity: 3 - Normal

The make_openout_test function has a </dev/null on the command line for
running the TeX command. This clashes with the --batch option, as in this case
there would be two instances of </dev/null on the same command line, which
bash does not accept.

This means that texi2dvi does not work any longer with --bach command line

Attached is a simple fix, it is proposed that make_openout_test makes use of
the batch variables in order to force the </dev/null. That makes almost no
change, except that there will also be an interaction mode = nonstopmode
passed to etex.

Note: I have put the priority 6 only because I more or less understood that
you were on the verge of making a new release.
