### Problems with memoir + MnSymbol

Hi,

It appears as if calling MnSymbol is messing up with spacing. I'm using mathspec with Minion Pro as the main font, together with Memoir, to produce the following title:

without-mnsymbol.pdf
Spacing without \usepackage{MnSymbol}
(34.54 KiB) Downloaded 146 times

The title is obtained via a custom chapterstyle, using the following code:

\pretitle{\vskip 6em\flushleft\Large \bfseries}
\posttitle{\par\vskip 0.5em}
\preauthor{\flushleft\small \lineskip 1em}
\postauthor{\par\vskip 0.1em}
\predate{\flushleft\scriptsize\vskip 0.35em}
\postdate{\par\vskip 2em}

Now, if I call the MnSymbol package (either directly in the preamble of the file or as an option in my .sty file---incidentally, for it to work I need to embed it in a `\AtEndOfPackage', though I can't see why), the spacing specified inside `\preauthor' and `\predate' appears smaller than before:

with-mnsymbol.pdf
Spacing with \usepackage{MnSymbol}

I can adjust the spacing by increasing the number of em I'm using, but I want to be able to call MnSymbol as an option without changing the title format.

Any thoughts?

Thanks a lot,

APC
