expert, you should install TeX Live completely.  If a particular
Debian package is not installed, TeX never produces wrong output
not related to Debian packaging.

Norbert already pointed you to http://tex.stackexchange.com

Alternatively, if you prefer mailing lists,

http://tug.org/mailman/listinfo/texhax

is also appropriate.

*tiny* TeX file which allows people to reproduce your problem and
attach it to your message to either stackexchange or texhax.

I guess that you have math formulas within paragraphs.  They are
treated as ordinary text, of course,$$and$$linebreaks can occur
everywhere.

If you want to avoid linebreaks within formulas, put your formulas
between $$and$$.

I strongly recommend to type

texdoc amsmath

There is no bug$$and$$there is no new version of TeX.  For a quarter of
a century I believed that the LaTeX sources of my diploma thesis were
lost because we used floppy disks at this time.

I recently found the LaTeX sources of my diploma thesis in a ZIP file
and even though they depend on an older version of LaTeX (LaTeX2.09),
I can still compile them with the current release of LaTeX/TeX Live,
without the need to touch any file.

Even if a new version of TeX is released, you can be dead certain that
it never breaks existing documents.

Regards,
Reinhard
