That has been a problem with Illustrator for a long time. I'm still  
at Illustrator 10 so I can't comment on 11 or CS or whatever it's  
called now.

The only real solution I've seen is to use WARMreader + WarmFigToPDF  
which works nicely.

In the end I started making my exam figures, etc., with Stone  
Studio's Create and haven't turned back.

Good Luck,
