Hi Gavin, dear all,

(please keep cc)

Another problem with 6.1 has popped up, not being really
Debian specific. It is in the sources of sbcl (common lisp

I reduced the problem to the following minimal not-working

\input texinfo   @c -*-texinfo-*-

@end tex
@end iftex

@macro lw{word}
@end tex
@end macro



and the error message is
/mnwe.texinfo:21: TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [text input levels=15].
\scanmacro ...atspaces }\scantokens {#1\texinfoc }
l.2 \lw{aaa}
\scanmacro ...atspaces }\scantokens {#1\texinfoc }
l.2 \lw{aaa}
\scanmacro ...atspaces }\scantokens {#1\texinfoc }
l.2 \lw{aaa}
l.21 @address@hidden
No pages of output.

I did run the test with the version in Debian, as well as with the
latest code in svn (texinfo [version 2016-03-06.18]).

I also confirmed that with the version from 6.0 it works:
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.16 (TeX Live 2015/Debian) 
(preloaded format=etex)
 restricted \write18 enabled.
