Whether the inconsistency between the output obtained above with
TeXForm and the output obtained when TraditionalForm is used in
the same manner should be considered a bug or not, I'll leave to
others. It does seem to me a more convenient way to getting a
series of TeXForm outputs would be:

In[2]:= TeXForm /@ {a - b, a/b, a + b}

Out[2]= {a-b,\frac{a}{b},a+b}

which clearly does what it should. I see this as more convenient
since it takes several fewer keystrokes to get the desired output.
