Yep, it's in the TODO list to figure out how to fix that.  The problem is
with the hyperref package.  The docs say that no escaping is required for
"#", but, as you note, I can't currently get it to work with or without
escaping.

In the end, to get a working version, you need to hit "q" (for "quiet") at
the errors and just let LaTeX happily ignore them.  I'm working towards
zero errors, but it might be a while before I get there.

Joshua.
