It all seems to work fine, but the subsequent book on the Reader (PRS-500) is tiny, and I have to resize each page in turn.

Why doesn't the reader stick with the current size when turning the page? Or could it be something odd about the way I create PDFs?
Well I'm not answering your question directly, but if your using word to format text from PG, you might want to look at installing BookCreator and Calibre. BookCreator runs withing Word so once you edit/configure your text you can build an LRF with BookCreator. LRF is the native file to the SONY Readers so you'll end up with a better looking file and a faster performing file on the SONY Reader.
