There seems to be a conflict between pdfsync and memoir, specifically  
with the p option in tabular. The sample below is a a 4-column table,  
copied directly from the memoir manual (meman.pdf, p 165). In the  
typeset document the table extends beyond the right margin. Removing  
the pdfsync package remives the problem and the table appears as shown  
in the manual. Also, there is no conflict when the same is typeset  
using the standard article class (but you must remove \raggedright 

\begin{tabular}{|c|p{5.5pc}|c|p{5.5pc}|} \hline
\multicolumn{2}{|c|}{Multicolumn entry!} & THREE & FOUR \\ \hline
one &
\raggedright\arraybackslash The width of this column is fixed (5.5pc). &
three &
\raggedright\arraybackslash Column four will act in the same way as
column two, with the same width.\\

Can we hope for a fix?
