[racket-dev] scribble pdf

Most of the time when I run scribble to get PDF output, I get something like:

Output written on main.pdf (8 pages, 272591 bytes).
PDF statistics:
 1061 PDF objects out of 1200 (max. 8388607)
 736 compressed objects within 8 object streams
 17 named destinations out of 1000 (max. 500000)
 271 words of extra memory for PDF output out of 10000 (max. 10000000)

run-pdflatex: got error exit code

 === context ===
/Users/jay/Dev/scm/plt/collects/scribble/private/run-pdflatex.rkt:25:2: loop

/Users/jay/Dev/scm/plt/collects/scribble/run.rkt: [running body]

make: *** [main.pdf] Error 1

I'm guessing that it is because there is something like missing
cross-references or something? But scribble deletes the PDF, so I
can't look at it even though latex says it made it, and there's no
other useful message.
