I'm not sure I understand the problem description. Turning on prettification
does breaks table alignment; thus,

| a      | b | c |
|--------+---+---|
| \alpha |   |   |

is always displayed as

| a      | b | c |
|--------+---+---|
| α |   |   |

I can indeed reproduce this; one way to prevent it from happening would be to
prettify "\alpha" as "α     ".

On the other hand, realigning the table (by pressing tab in a cell) produces
the expected alignment:

| a | b | c |
|---+---+---|
| α |   |   |

which in turn looks wrong when prettification is disabled:

| a | b | c |
|---+---+---|
| \alpha |   |   |

Does this match your experience? If so, I don't think it's a bug, as much as a
limitation of prettification.
