Hi David (and Mosè),

It's not just preview-latex.  It makes good sense to avoid line-wrapping
stuff like $\sum_{i=0}^2 i$ in the middle even when not using
preview-latex.  Using preview-latex leads to overlong lines when a line
break in the middle gets hidden.  Which makes it a good idea in the
context of preview-latex to break after the final $ again _iff_ there is
a line break in the middle.  So the "break after" rules are mostly
interesting in the context of preview-latex.  But the "break before"
rules which move a formula to the next line if it would otherwise be
broken across lines certainly make sense also outside of preview-latex.

The point is that, until a month or so ago when the bug was corrected, such line break as you describe *never* happened *by default* for '$...$' inline formulae. In fact, when the bug was corrected and line break started to behave as you describe, a user wrote to the auctex mailing list, asking on why the new "odd" line-breaking behaviour.

So, to put LaTeX-fill-break-at-separators to nil or to (better in my opinion) (\\\[ \\\]) by default, is actually to revert to the filling behaviour that auctex had for several years...

...Or am I missing something?
