comment Spacing (numwidth) control for listtheorems
thanks, but unfortunately I hadn't realised that the fix would also depend on the fact that I am using hyperref. In any case, a suitable modification to the appropriate lines in ntheorem.sty patches the problem.

comment Hyperref and ntheorem's thref: inconsistent numbering
What I am confused about is why the difference introduced by hyperref?

comment Hyperref and ntheorem's thref: inconsistent numbering
Looks like nothing broke! (Just tried both pdf and dvi versions.) So it looks like it works. Thanks. I will leave this open for a little bit just to get some eyes on it. Otherwise I'll accept this answer later today.

comment Hyperref and ntheorem's thref: inconsistent numbering
to distinguish Theorem 1.1.1 in Part 1 and Theorem 1.1.1 in Part 2, I am using smartref's \partref command. I have a macro set-up such that citing theorems in the same part of the book will generate "Theorem 1.1.1", whereas citing theorems in a different part of the book will generate "Part II, Theorem 1.1.1". Since there aren't very many cross-part references, this can help make the text slightly more readable.

comment Why do “in prep” papers behave differently from “year'd” ones?
Yet another reason to switch to biblatex. (Unfortunately that is not my document that is being prepared yada yada.) Thanks for the diagnosis: while it doesn't solve the problem, it cleared up where the problem is (and so we were able to work around it).

comment How to prevent paragraph breaks after theorem environments?
I'm sorry to do this (removing a green check). But I think lockstep's answer below explains it better. Cheers.

comment Why do “in prep” papers behave differently from “year'd” ones?
The question is about why for years, Natbib correctly produces "Author [1997a,b]", but for manuscripts in prep it shows "Author [in prep.a,i]", and how to fix it. I've edited the question to clarify.

@Tormod: APA has nothing to do with this question (it is not the style guide used for the preparation of this document). The output referred to in the question text is the desired output: for published paper it should show "Author [year]", and for in prep paper it should read "Author [in prep.]" or "Author [in prep.b]" if it is the second of a list of manuscripts in preparation.

comment Quartertone symbols
Thanks! Just tried it out. I may have to do a little bit of adjustments, but it looks like it would work in a pinch.

@percusse: I'd vote you up if you would post that as an answer, instead of as a comment!

comment Quartertone symbols
@doncherry: that doesn't look right. U+0021 is the unicode number for the exclamation mark. The unicode symbols with the description as the quartertone sharp/flat symbols are U+1D132 and 1D133, but they are not the ones I referred to in my post (the symbols are not completely standardised in the musical community, and the ones I want are more common for Ottoman music).

I'm sorry for not understanding, but what do you mean by "a whole site"?

comment bibliography in Beamer
How are you loading your bibliography? On my slides (where I use bibtex and \bibliographystyle{amsalpha}, there is no such splitting of lines.

Think ordinal arithmetic.

Dear Ben: you cannot post a picture because you are a relatively new user. One way to get around it is to upload the picture somewhere else and provide a link to it. Other higher reputation users (or the moderators) can then insert the picture to your post for you.

A bit of a followup question: how do you find the correct \hel\char"F042 string to use in the font? (In particular I am leaning somewhat to using the OpenType Feta fonts from the lilypond project.)

comment Quartertone symbols
That's a decent lead. Searching for Helsinki Special brought up this page, which also lists some other fonts with those symbols: Maestro, Maestro percussion, Jazz perc, Tamburo for example.

Thanks for your answer. This explains everything.

comment Quartertone symbols
As far as I can tell, MusiXTeX does not support quartertones (its accidental support is limited to the western semitones). Also, it is more designed to typeset staff music, whereas I just want the symbol inline in textbody.
