Not sure why that happens. I suspect different possibilities like  
language you use, overhand writing, freehanded writing, wrapping  
settings.. But I can't reproduce your issue.

I think some bundles have changed over time. I think what you have is  
recent. If you download every bundle update via subversion, that's  
the latest. I have no experience with latex, so somebody else will  
hopefully chime in. Make sure that some bundles have Help in the  
bundle, which is not available in Help menu in the menu bar. LaTeX  
bundle has a very long help file.

Sorry for not being able to help you. Email to Allan, and you'll get  
the answer instantly :)
