The Y&Y CM and AMS and "Extra LaTeX + SliTeX" fonts
differ from the BSR/Y&Y/AMS  et al fonts at
You can compare file date and file size and version number in
the file to see which one you have installed at the moment.

The Y&Y versions have additional hinting, and changes made by
Knuth (beyond the "delta" in the math italic).  Also additional
sizes of some of the "CM" math fonts in the "AMS" set and
extra stuff in "Extra LaTeX + SliTeX"  (which, by the way, slipped
into the BSR/Y&Y/AMS et al distribution only by mistake).

But the "bug" under discussion here (in Acrobat Reader, DVIPS,
PS printer drivers or pdfTeX --- depending on your point of view)
would not be affected by these changes I don't think.

Regards, Berthold.

Footnote to Y&Y users: Don't worry,  PDF produced by DVIPSONE
+ Distiller is not affected  by these new "misfeature"s of Acrobat ...
