Looking at the two options you provided, the text in the problematic text box 
seems distorted,  it looks like you may have somehow stretched the original 
dimensions of thectext box. If you have the file copy the text from the text 
box, paste it into a new txt file, delete the problematic layer and paste the 
text in a new text layer.
