Hi David (and Mosè),


It's not just preview-latex.  It makes good sense to avoid line-wrapping
stuff like $\sum_{i=0}^2 i$ in the middle even when not using
preview-latex.  Using preview-latex leads to overlong lines when a line
break in the middle gets hidden.  Which makes it a good idea in the
context of preview-latex to break after the final $again _iff_ there is a line break in the middle. So the "break after" rules are mostly interesting in the context of preview-latex. But the "break before" rules which move a formula to the next line if it would otherwise be broken across lines certainly make sense also outside of preview-latex.    The point is that, until a month or so ago when the bug was corrected, such line break as you describe *never* happened *by default* for '$...\$' inline formulae. In fact, when the bug was corrected and line break started to behave as you describe, a user wrote to the auctex mailing list, asking on why the new "odd" line-breaking behaviour.


So, to put LaTeX-fill-break-at-separators to nil or to (better in my opinion) (\\$\\$) by default, is actually to revert to the filling behaviour that auctex had for several years...

...Or am I missing something?

Cheers,
J
