Has anybody followed this de.comp.text.tex thread?

It deals with a disappearing protrusion at a manually set hyphen dash,
e. g. in the test file below the one "Mammut-marsch".

Or is this setup wrong? Only thing i found out is that the particular
line with the manual hyphen ends with a disc_node (type 7), but the
other lines seem to end with a vlist_node (type 1), whatever that means.
And the automatic hyphens have a right_pw of 163840, whereas the manual
one has zero there. No clue how to trace this further.
