[BOOK] PDF typographical oddity

I've just been reading the Subversion book, version 1.0, as
downloaded from


I've noticed an odd typographical feature in the PDF when a quoted
word or phrase is hyphenated across two lines. A good example is
near the bottom of page 65. The text in the HTML reads

  We'll discuss how to backup your repository in the section called
  "Repository Backup", but the [...]

but the PDF only puts the quotes around the part _after_ the hyphen,
like this:

  We'll discuss how to backup your repository in the section called Reposi-
  "tory Backup", but the [...]

This appears to be a consistent error in the entire PDF; it also
occurs on page 19 (back-"date") and right at the top of page 39

An exception is on page 5, where "bottom up" is correctly
hyphenated. However, a closer look reveals that that particular
quoted phrase isn't using the same kind of quotes as most of the
others, so I conjecture that a different source construction was in
use here.
