Interaction problem with xkeyval

Anonymous created an issue

In the following example, the lines usepackage and usetheme must be swapped in order to compile properly.

Could this problem be fixed ? Is it related to fragile macros ?

Regards,

==8<--------------------------------------------- \documentclass{beamer}

\usepackage{xkeyval} \usetheme[secheader, footline=authortitle]{Madrid}

\begin{document}

    This change seems to cause

    \documentclass[dvipdfmx]{beamer}
    

    to fail with the following error:

    ! Package keyval Error: dvipdfmx undefined.
    

    I know that the option dvipdfmx is not declared (as dvipdfmx is not yet “officially” supported). But before the change placing dvipdfmx class option worked actually for the use of dvipdfmx, because this worked as a “global option” and was applied to hyperref and pgfcore (via graphicx) loaded inside beamer.

    Adding explicit declaration of dvipdfmx would solve this problem. But I still believe that unknown class options should never issue an error.

    (By the way, I am preparing some patches of Beamer for use with dvipdfmx….)
