Well, this is even more bizarre than I thought. This is all happening in
the context of a master document.

In unpredictable ways, there are either ellipses or opening quotes that
suddenly appear enlarged in the pdf of the master doc, causing also
irregular line spacing.
The same problem is not evident in the original doc, or even in the pdf of
the doc - it only manifests in the pdf of the masterdoc.

and... I can fix it by deleting the seemingly enlarged characters, and
replacing them with the same characters from a known good location.

In short the distortions are incidental to the merging into the masterdoc,
and have nothing to do with the PDF conversion, but are inherent to the
assembly process of subdocs into the masterdoc.

Well I've tried with doPDF and the same absurd irregularities appear... so
that is not an improvement over the native pdf conversion.

Meanwhile, no pics, no special fonts, unless you consider Times New Roman
a special font. No Cambria Math, just plain old text. And it is really odd
when you see the opening quote on a word appear 10 point sizes bigger in
the PDF than it was in the original text- without any difference in the
point size in the text. And this irregularity then leads to irregular line
spacing, however at times the irregular line spacing happens without any
visual clues as to a 'cause.'
