[OS X TeX] Ugly character spacing

When I compile the following code with pdflatex, there is only a 
miniscule amount of space between the "if" and the $\scr{Y}$, they 
appear to almost run together, and it looks terrible. I have often 
encountered this kind of problem within and without theorem 
environments, and with or without the fourier package. It usually 
involves a transition between regular text and a $...$ string. I can 
fix this sort of problem by inserting a \; but I feel like I'm putting 
a band aid on the problem when I shouldn't have to. Questions:

(1) Has anyone else been having this problem?
(2) Is this a known problem that might be fixed?
(3) Will every distribution produce the exact same results so that I 
don't have to worry about inserting the \; and producing too much space 
between the "if" and the \scr{Y} when someone else compiles it?
