This sort of thing worked a year ago and two years ago (sorry, not sure of the versions now):

because it's too fragile for general use (xml etc) you now have to explicitly enable it:

A = \pmatrix{
 0.006525 \hfill& 0.006331 \hfill& 0.006828 \hfill\cr
 1.006    \hfill& 0.009352 \hfill& 1.010 \hfill\cr
 0.002385 \hfill& 0.006376 \hfill& 1.001 \hfill\cr
Now the ampersands are not treated as alignment characters, but as ordinary characters in the version

There is a similar sort of behavior with \cases:
$\cases{x & if $x>0$ \cr y &if $x>0$ \cr}$
Is there an easy fix? I'd like not to have to edit old files.
