Summary: pdftex always autoexpands -- even if it shouldn't

Initial Comment:
pdftex is now a bit too keen on autoexpanding -- it
does so, even if `autoexpand' is not specified.
Although the pre-created metrics are read, the physical
font (pfb resp. pk) is ignored. As has been discussed
re: bugs/304, *not* using autoexpansion gives better
results for MM (and MF) fonts, since the fonts are not
stretched blindly but stroke widths are adjusted etc.

I've moved the test file from bugs/304 here. Another
example is (with an existing file cmr10+100.mf):

\pdfadjustspacing2
\pdfmapline{ cmr10}
\pdfmapline{+cmr10+100}
\font\cmr =cmr10 \cmr
\pdffontexpand\cmr 100 0 100 %autoexpand
Hamburgefonts\par
\parfillskip 0pt
Hamburgefonts
\bye
