 Input: \documentclass[12pt]{spieman} \title{Some title} \begin{document} \maketitle \end{document}  spieman.cls can be found here: https://github.com/I2Cvb/spie-jei-2015/blob/master/spieman.cls Output: 

Some title

 While I understand that the issue is can be more with the class-file itself, is it possible to workaround it somehow to leave Some title unchanged?

 I assume this is with --includestyles, and it is because the class file (re)defines \title. I guess the safest thing here is to lock the definition (if a class file redefines it w/different argument pattern, it'll likely mess up anyway). So, hopefully fixed? Thanks for the report!

 @brucemiller thank you very much! I've just tested - results are perfect. I really appreciate that you consider to fix such corner cases like this one.
