I get the same thing occasionally from ordinary paragraphs. In a 200
page book, I have five messages like:

Overfull \hbox (7.04726pt too wide) in paragraph at lines 5472--5472
\T1/ptm/m/n/10 Wa-ter char-ac-ters of this book are po-tent memes who
dom-i-nate my thoughts

What appears in the pdf are lines which run over the right margin. It
appears that pdfjadetex is having difficulty hyphenating. The hyphens
(e.g. Wa-ter) appear in the log but not in the tex file. Is there a
way to nudge it, say, by editing the tex?

I am using jadetex-2.7-2. Does anyone get this problem with newer jadetex's?
