Be happy that Acrobat doesn't crash ;) Snow Leopard kept crashing on
my files, even if I only wanted to attach them in my emails.

It's not the same company, but I submitted a bug report about
rendering of smooth shading to Apple around 2007. Last month they
replied me for the first time, saying that I should upgrade to
10.7.<latest> which probably fixes the bug. Of course it doesn't
(except that Lion now doesn't crash, but it still renders patterns in
the wrong way).
