Initial Comment:

Current PDFs generated by pdfTex do not 'reflow'
properly with Acrobat Reader - selecting 'reflow'
causes all the words to run together. This appears to
be because pdfTex uses explicit kerns for spaces
instead of including the space character in the text
string. Is it possible to change this? (perhaps by
including a space in the text string and adjusting the
explicit kern by the width of the space)

patch 945 does this. Needs more testing.
