That workaround works, thanks.

Yes, it is a security issue. It definitely is not something that should be
on by default. I am already a little worried by the workaround, since it
effectively sets the flag globally, and I need to have other latex tools
circumnavigate the script, hoping I don't forget any. In any case, it might
be ugly, but it works.
