Ah, so we'd need to ask the TeX Live people for that.

Country based? THAT explains a lot. There are only a few Canadian mirrors, and at least one is on the far side of the continent from me.

@cfr Is it supposed to pick a close one? It could be I was just close to a slow one at the time. It is odd though: I was a 40 minute drive from UWaterloo at the time, hard to think another would be closer.

@cfr Because when I was near a university and manually specified a mirror it would go from 2 hours to download a new TeX Live install to under half an hour. Why would I use some random mirror located half a planet away?

@HenriMenke TeXLive Manager will give me a list of mirrors, but I can only guess where they are physically located (which worked fine when I lived down the road from a uni hosting one of them, but now that I'm 4500 km away I get much slower rates from that mirror)

@HenriMenke Wouldn't the fact that is on a different continent from me slow things down some?

Managed to reproduce the problem. It only happens when I have the superscripts following a subtitle. MWE updated.

@DavidCarlisle Good point. The problem is in my full document with the \footnotesize removed I still get ....\glue(\lineskip) 1.0, and I can't figure out why. Give me a minute to fiddle with my MWE and try and reproduce it.

That would also make my entire document longer, which is the opposite of what I want. I'm writing to a page limit, and don't like the idea of throwing away space like that.

I updated the question to remove the \footnotesize.
