It has to do with values of threshold. I adapted the code a bit (next beta)

- a threshold is a pct of the font size (was designsize)
- i now default to 5pct which is .5 pt for a 10 pt font
- i also limit to max 10 pct and issue a warnign when > 5pct
- lucida might come out better with values < 5

I'm still considering to default to just .5pt but that is something I 
need to discuss with Wolfgang. Also a matter of testing.

These thresholds also relate to the size of the pdf file (small values 
means larger files). Now, another thing to keep in mind is that each 
expansion change (in one line there can be different expansion factors 
used) also triggeres a resync.
