Yes, that should be fixed, since spacers with zero width work as 
expected in all other situations. They are only ignored in 
_listWrapOn(), resulting in a wrong calculation of the height, so that 
KeepTogether does not work correctly. It's hard to spot the cause for 
that problem if you're hitten by that.

I just peeked into the repository; it seems the line "if w<=_FUZZ or 
h<=_FUZZ: continue" was introduced in revision 2700 by you. I'm not sure 
what it shall accomplish. Do you remember? Maybe you can just remove it.

BTW, I noticed that on the page http://reportlab.org/rl_toolkit.html, 
the link "Subversion details" is wrong, it points to subverson.html 
instead of subversion.html.
