[OS X TeX] Fine point of mathematical typing?

How desperate are you? Changing "$\ldots$" to "$\ldots$\hskip1.865in 
\null" works (at least on my machine), but it's not very robust, to  
say the least. Note that if you leave a space between the $ from the $ 
\ldots$ and the \ for \hskip, you'll have to plug in a different  
number for the amount of the skip.

If you put a \raggedright after the \begin{document} you'll see the  
problem. TeX is compressing the previous lines a tiny bit to fit 11  
numbers per line. The last line doesn't need that compression, so you  
have to force it somehow. The \hskip was the first thing that came to  
mind...there may well be better ways.
