# [OS X TeX] weird indentation

I have not been able to figure out what is going on with the
following code (TeXShop 2.14 under 10.4.11):

\documentclass[11pt]{book}
\usepackage{paralist}

\usepackage{lmodern}
\usepackage{fink}

\setdefaultleftmargin{5mm}{6mm}{7mm}{8mm}{}{}
% controls indents on compactitem

\begin{document}
\begin{compactitem}
\setlength{\itemsep}{0mm}
\item
A
\item
B
\end{compactitem}
\end{document}

As is, item A will be more indented than item B. Comment out lmodern
or fink (or the default margin) and item A will be flush with item B.

Obviously no big deal but it' s starting to get on my nerves.

Hopeful regards
