The TeX output of long variable names is broken: they are just  output as a string.  In all versions of TeX, this means that the spacing will be adjusted to make it clear that this is a product of separate variables, exactly what is not intended.  For instance, 'fi's in the output will not be replaced by ligatures.  Long variable names need to be put into (say) an hbox in order to get the spacing correct.

This is particularly obvious in the TeXmacs interface, which seems to add more space than standard TeX, but it is always a bug.
