Hi, thanks for the awesome plugin.

Just want to check if the developers are aware of the following issue:

bibtex 0.99c has recently introduced a security feature. It fails when the files it works on are _not_ in its cwd.
Example:

bibtex /some/dir/file.bib ----> fails

cd /some/dir/
bibtex file.bib ----> OK

My gedit and its latex plugin is broken due to this. I'm on Archlinux 64bit.

If you guys are aware and have already addressed this, just disregard this message.

  • This requires the .bib file to be in the same directory as the .tex file being built (thanks Moritz)
