David, sorry to have a counter-view:

In the past 17 years of using FM and Acrobat I always got incorrect pdfs with 
option checked. Until Acrobat 9.5 it was (re)set with every update of Acrobat 
and I 
had to uncheck it frequently.
However, the effect from checking or unchecking this option may depend on the 
(or more sarcastic: from the water level in the toilet).
I wonder what 'our' expert at Adobe (Dov Isaaks) says about this option.
