[OS X TeX] Printing wrong from Acrobat, right from TeXShop

Since some weeks, a strange problem happens to me from time to 
time--not always: If I try to print from Acrobat Reader a pdf file 
produced by some TeX variety, some fonts, not all, seem to be missing 
and are substituted by courier, with wrong spacing, etc. This seems to 
happen with only some sizes of cmr, since \Large, \textbf, \textsc, 
maths, etc. print OK. The file is correctly viewed on screen, and 
moreover if I open it with TeXShop--even when it was produced in 
another computer with another TeX--then it prints correctly!

Does this seem to be an installation-related problem ? Or rather a 
printer-related one ? I don't know how differently handle fonts and 
printing the Reader and TeXShop... (well, I know nothing at all...). 
Any advice about where should I direct my next steps will be greatly 


MacOS 10.3.8, teTeX from one year or so, TeXShop 1.35e, Laser Printer
