Hi there,  i have a geodatabase with streams and am labeling the streams with a field in the geodatabase.  When I use the layer without maplex, the labels work just fine.  When I turn maplex on to accommodate other layers that utilize the extension it scrunches the labels.  I know that this was a bug in previous versions but thought it was resolved in 9.3.  Is there some setting that I can turn on or something to help me get these labels to draw correctly and still use maplex?
