That's perfectly clear to me, now. Thanks.

I have had once my ECM exported without the documentclass directive as well,
but I'm not 100% anymore of how I did it -- can't reproduce it right now.
Anyhow, this is still strange to me.

The important is that I now am able to compile the ECM with the new exporter
and get the desired results. Thanks!

However, I thought that LaTeX_CLASS had been renamed EXPORT_LaTeX_CLASS, but
when using the latter, I get frames inside an article' documentclass type of
document -- while using C-c E l O' (for Beamer)? That results in a weird
document...

Best regards,
Seb
