### LaTeX: pdfsync and tabular p-width

If you include pdfsync, a nice package that adds hyperlinks to a pdf generated from LaTeX, be warned that it will break the p-widths of tables.  For instance

\begin{tabular}{p{1in}}
abc def
\end{tabular}

will make the column nearly the width of the entire page rather than 1 inch.  I don't have a workaround for this yet.  If you have one, please let me know.  The bug is noted elsewhere, but I haven't seen a correction.

I had the same problem with tabularx. Including the package as
\usepackage[novbox]{pdfsync}
fixed this.
