Yet another interesting bug (presumably in pdftex-1.20a):
When a word is hyphenated automatically, the resulting
hyphen is correctly protruded into the right margin,
but a hyphen part of a compung word in French is not protruded
at all. Looks _really_ bad when both kinds of hyphens
occure on two consecutive lines...
Here is a test file showing the problem:





Con{\TeX}t. En revanche, un niveau de complication supplémentaire 
apparaîtra forcément dès que l'on voudra autoriser qu'un format 
comme \LaTeX\ soit généré au-dessus de pdfe\TeX{} ou au-dessus 
de Oméga, prenne en compte des options telles que
enc\TeX{} ou non.


The bug _does not_ occur with TL2003 (pdftex 1.11a)...
I was told it is corrected in pdfTeX-1.20b, anybody can
