Robby clarified what's happening.

I didn't want it as a proof -- only as a way to see what would you get
with it.  In your case the error is below, and my guess is that it's
mostly useless without the latex file (and even with it it's pretty
bad).  Allowing interactions as Robby suggested sounds like a way to
get latex-like behavior, and you could even look at the latex file,
but you'd need to be told where it is and that it will be erased when
the whole thing is done.

The control sequence marked <to be read again> should
not appear between \csname and \endcsname.
