Include these line in your preamble:


This will make the \section and \subsection leave the usual \parskip 
*before* the heading, but leave a vertical space 0.001 point more than 
the usual \parskip *after* the heading. But that doesn't matter, does it?

Problem is, if we set the second skip to 0, we get a run-in heading.
