@DavidCarlisle --- Well I wouldn't take offense anyway; I'm perfectly happy to admit that I don't understand the code for fixltx2e, so I shouldn't really be hacking it.

comment Missing superscript on author
LaTeX writes certain information that it needs to a file with the extension .aux. It needs this information to insert references, etc. so you often have to run it twice (or even three times if certain packages are used).

You can use \(a\) instead, but this just does some extra error checking; it doesn't affect formulas that work. Can you clarify, what exactly have the typesetters changed?
