As requested, although the code below is even simplier.  Everything appears correctly on the screen...the incomplete fractionline appears when printed to a pdf file, or when the notebook is simply printed. 

The problem disappears when a term (numerator or denominator) is 2-letter, e.g., xy / a.  This didn't occur in 6.0.1 but the problem is now known to Wolfram Research.

Can you include the actual cell expression?  Select the cell bracket &
choose Edit > Copy As > Cell Expression from the menu bar.  I don't
see any problems with the PDF created by Mathematica when simply
copying the above text from my browser and pasting it into a text cell
in Mathematica.
