The problem is caused by the footer string width calculation. It's based 
on 'page <page>/<total>' but is rendered as 'page 1/7' which is narrower. 
Right justification is calculated by setting the X value to the right margin 
minus the string width, so in this case it's off by a bit.

'<page>' can be translated earlier in the build, since we know which output 
page number is being created, but '<total>' cannot. 
The translation code was left in the output step 
(R4PBuilder>>updateOutputPages) to keep in all in one place.
I'm not sure what the best fix would be. Perhaps the #updateOutputPages can 
adjust the X value after the string replacement. 
I'll look into it, but no quick fix this time ;-)

      side of the page numbering."
