For me the compilation with pdflatex works fine on master, but I have an
outdated TeX Live version (and I don't want to update right now since I
don't want to break compilations I need for work).

Remind me in a week or so if there is still a mystery and I can test on
an updated TL once I get my Virtual Box setup working again.
