The cause is somewhere in Mac OS X 10.5.x: every PDF viewer (except
the Adobe products or X11 clients like gs/gv or xpdf) use system APIs
and therefore system services that evoke the chaos. (One idea that
came to my mind is that fonts in TeX are almost always re-encoded.
"Normal" documents and those created via XeTeX use the Unicode
encoded fonts as is, i.e., "naturally un-encoded.") The way to avoid
this is: return to Tiger (in this case I have to warn you about
Apple's latest so-called security update 8/2008: it made my PowerBook
unusable), upgrade to Snow-leopard (Mac OS X 10.6) that is not
regularly traded yet, or use different PDF viewers, those, which are
not depending on Apple "technology."
