Summary: Spacing Bug with \pdfliteral direct

Initial Comment:
"\pdfliteral direct" screws up spacing. Hans found it.
Therefore one has to use the non-direct variant e. g.
for changing color in text, which results in tedious
transforms.

The trivial patch seems to solve this. Now it's
possible to define color "direct". See the test.pdf
file. Actually i don't understand at all what the patch
does, but it seemed to be the only place where the literal
interferes with position calculations.

It seems that the patch does not mangle the horizontal
positioning calculation; see the placement of the
\vrule after the ET, which is independent from whether
\pdfliteral direct is used or not.

Rough patch. Tests welcome.

Regards, Hartmut
