In version 3.3.2,


a bug fix found by Vytis Banaitis (vytis @ bitbucket) removes double padding in 
Table._calcPreliminaryWidths which can have effects on table column sizes.

I looked at differences in all the reportlab test cases and there were only a 
few. Personally I preferred the earlier outcomes, but using the padding twice is 
clearly wrong.

If you want to restore the earlier outcome then shout loudly here and I will add 
some settings mechanism to accomplish that.
