[20060903] WTF: latex(1) generating PDF instead of DVI?!
After upgrading my system and all pkgs (including teTeX), running latex(1) produced a PDF file instead of DVI all of a sudden. WTF?!

Doing some digging, it seems that

    \usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx} 
was the culprit, and that changing it to
    \usepackage{graphicx} 
got me a DVI file back. But serious guys - that's a very nasty side effect that shook my foundations. TeX not doing what it did the past XX years. :(
