I've tracked this down to a bug in our XSL customization layer (a
"keep-together" attribute was being interpreted a little more literally than
I was expecting), I've also changed verbatim blocks (i.e. code blocks) to
allow line-wrapping using a "carriage return" character as a hyphenation
character, so very long lines of code don't get truncated any more.

On the table column width front, I've no idea how to fix this, I'll try and
seek some advice on this from the RenderX folks,

Meanwhile the latest PDF build is now on the FTP server,
