See the top of this file:

# Important notes:
#   * See the "system" manual for explanations on Isabelle settings
#   * User settings go into $ISABELLE_HOME_USER/etc/settings
#   * DO NOT EDIT the repository copy of this file!
#   * DO NOT COPY this file into the $ISABELLE_HOME_USER directory!

Anyway, I did not quite understand the purpose of --shell-escape.
Instead of odd shell hacking there are at least two official possibilities:

  * Use of document/build scripts (see examples in the Isabelle
distribution in src/Doc/...).

  * Use of Isabelle/ML to generate required latex sources (via document
antiquotations). (You can use the Prover IDE with control-hover-click on
existing antiquotations to get to example implementations).
