Re: it is a bug in pdflatex or Apple PDFKit: almost certainly the latter, since a slight change 
in the magnification removes the distortion (for me). This would not be true if the problem 
were in the underlying pdf file, would it?

I haven't noticed this on TexWorks (I don't have Adobe Reader). I have a strong dislike for almost everything about TW and would rather put up with these distortions than use it (I find that I feel this way about many cross-platform apps).

Try to check if the same distortion appears in TeXWorks and Adobe Reader: Preview, TS and Skim are PDFKit based, while TW is poppler based and AR has an Adobe engine. 


You can download AR which is the only full featured PDF browser. I am not using TW usually as well but the question was: is distortion a defect of the produced pdf document (and then it isa bug either in pdflatex or in the package you use) or it is a bug in Apple PDFKit. It looks like it is a latter.
