norbert preining has reported a problem in the use of the sauterstyle
ulasy.fd file with the amsmath package.
the problem that is encountered is related to the fact that quite
a bit of math font loading must occur the first time math mode is
entered. math font loading is rather complicated. i'm not sure
of the exact cause of the error being reported (and the amslatex
developer is out of the office until next week), but there's a
simple workaround.
if you force math mode to be initialized in a less involved environment,
the error very nicely goes away. this is what i did:
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{latexsym}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\begin{document}
$ $% force initialization of math mode
\begin{multline*}
x
\end{multline*}
\end{document}
this may be a bit inconvenient, but you can most likely find a place
early in your document where it shouldn't have any real side effects.
i have put the report onto our queue for investigation when time
permits.
