[tex-live] uninitialized line number in pdfTeX

The attached texinfo file produces this error message
./WarningProb.texi:-1162167622: Could not find image file [...]
if processed with
pdfetex --file-line-error WarningProb.texi
The reported line number is 0xbabababa; for me this indicates an
uninitialized (and consequently not set) line number.
Unfortunately, I get ./WarningProb.texi:0: Could not find ...
instead of the bogus value. Also on i386 GNU/Linux (specifically,
CentOS 5.6), with the same pdf(e)tex and texinfo.tex. Sigh.
Can you think of anything else in your environment that could be causing
the difference? Some memory-testing environment variable or something?
I tried running with MALLOC_CHECK_=2, to no avail.
Thanks as always,
