The problem is probably that a slightly more stupid version of the code in
lsmisc.mtx got left over in lsfake.mtx (section "Miscellaneous glyphs").
Try commenting that out instead.

Naively by a \resetint{interword}{\scale{\int{interword}}{1200}}, but since
interword often doesn't get defined before the ETX file where it is used,
you may have to copy the default code for setting it, as well. Then you get


as a complete chunk of code to put in some MTX file.
