Hm, it seems the problem is that the %&latex ends up on the second
line of the output. This is caused by a purported bugfix patch
that attempted to sanitize usage of verbatimtex (following the 'you
should leave everthing inside verbatimtex...etex totally as is'-rule).

 From this example, it obvious that any whitespace starting before the
TeX code in the first verbatimtex really does need to be stripped,
because tex's --parse-first-line is not willing to look at the second
line ;) This should not be a hard thing to fix (but the TeX interface
is always tricky).

Best wishes,
