Personally, I think it's a conspiracy. I don't know if they still do it, but when I was in school they taught us to separate sentences with two spaces - yet if you look in any magazine, newspaper, book, etc, you'll see only one space. Publishers, whether on-line or print, discourage the practice in submissions. So, any way, I think this is all a conspiracy by Athena. I think she's trying to break us of this very old habit.
Okay, more seriously - I looked at this the other night (when I added the Author to the reply screen), but couldn't immediately find the problem. That routine hasn't changed a bit since we moved to Athena, but obviously the effects of it have. That's going to take some investigation.
