Bug#357889: pdfscreen: \usepackage[francais]{babel}

Package: pdfscreen
Version: 1.5-6
Severity: normal


When "\usepackage[francais]{babel}" is present in the preamble,
the generated ".toc" file contains

\select@language {french}

as its first line.  And the following call to "pdflatex" complains:

! Undefined control sequence.
l.1 \select
           @language {french}

Ignoring it (by pressing return) produces a pdf file containing
the string "@language french" printed just above the first entry
of the table of contents.

When the reference to "babel" is commented out, the offending
disappears from the toc file.
[I assume that this could get annoying if e.g. hyphenation patterns
are needed...]
