InDesign line break issue

Has anyone experienced a problem such as this? When I was collecting source files for a vendor, I created a new PDF of the InDesign CS3 file. After comparing PDFs, I noticed several line breaks shifted since the last PDF was created and the file no longer matches our controlled document.

The only thing that had changed since the creation of the document and the original PDF was a hardware upgrade to 10.5.5 and the new laptop. The hardware specs are as follows:

Model Name: MacBook Pro
Model Identifier: MacBookPro4,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.6 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 6 MB
Memory: 4 GB
Bus Speed: 800 MHz
Boot ROM Version: MBP41.00C1.B03
SMC Version: 1.27f1
Sudden Motion Sensor:
State: Enabled

Does anyone know what could be causing this? I haven't checked if the H&Js settings are different but I would think it would keep any settings fromt he document when it was created.

Any help is appreciated.

A couple of things I would

A couple of things I would check are the preferences (you can set 'type' preferences globally in ID as far as I remember) and that the correct font is being used. As far as I know H&J settings are saved into the document itself so shouldn't change.

Have you got a test set-up you could compare this against to see what might be different?
