--no-act was broken in this respect. I think I've fixed it in

because they require more complicated situations than can arise if you
don't do anything.

Thanks, that was very helpful. Since I don't use TeX I was able to
use this as a nice test case :-).
I have reproduced and (I think) fixed the problem.
