This is a feature... Alt arrows move selected text 1 point in 100%zoom 
(in 200% zoom, it would be 0.5 point and vice versa). Adding the
Shift key, moves by 6 points in 100% zoom.

To reset, select text and use Alt-Home, or apply 'Default Pgf Font' 
character tag.

This is a bug... in Distiller 4.0 on NT.  Hopefully fixed in Distiller 4.05.
In the meantime, distill with Distiller 3.02.
