Default using a double dash

When I try to double dash for a single dash ("example--again") and finish the
second word, the two words scrunch together and the dash runs over the "e"
and "a". This is new, apparently I messed up a setting, but can't find it.

I hold down the Alt key, and then on the numeric keypad (Num Lock on) enter

The setting is in Tools AutoCorrect Options AutoFormat As You Type,
"Hyphens with dash". If you don't want it, uncheck it.

See http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Formatting/TameAutoFormat.htm for more.
