I entered


    $a^{2} + b^{2} = c^{2}$


as sent, that is with \usepackage{lastpage} already commented out, into 
a new page and Typeset LaTeX. The  console did not complain and the 
formula appeared as it should

Then I uncommented \usepackage{lastpage} with no change whatsoever.

I am running 1.34e with the OLD pdf.sync as the new pdf.sync still won't 
agree with me.

I don't know what lastpage is and even less whether I have it but it 
must be somewhere, part of a package I do have as otherwise, I suppose, 
the console would have objected.
