Description Bastien Nocera 2005-08-11 15:45:44 UTC
tetex-latex-1.0.7-67.7 with tetex-fonts-1.0.7-67.7

Run "latex file.tex" and check the generated "file.dvi". It will show a vector
sign as expected on the first and all lines, but a "ã" (a + tilde) in the middle

I receive a sane output when I don't use amsmath.sty. The bug is probably there.

Reported upstream:

Reported this to LaTeX upstream as well. I'll add a reference as soon as I'll
receive confirmation email from LaTeX people.

The bug is now registered under codename amslatex/3812 and I got this reply:

this is a known problem, and has been reported before to

 - 3416: Amsmath's \mathsf \vec prints a tilde accent
 - 3683: Wrong output of \vec in supscripts

we plan to deal with these all at once, and will do so
under #3416.  for this reason, we will close #3812.
however, i've posted a request to keep you informed when
a fix is made.

we do not yet have a solution; a workaround is to create
explicit commands to produce the vector in the proper
font, for example:
