I would think one of the many bugs of PDFKit, the Cocoa framework (if
that is indeed the correct term) used to display PDF files on OS X (by
Preview, Mail, Safari, TeXShop, Finder, etc.) except by Adobe
applications (which include their own PDF rendering routines). I
imagine xpdf would display the file correctly as well.
Apparently PDFKit was reengineered considerably between Tiger and
Leopard (it was moved completely out of CoreGraphics), that might play
a role here. See for example <http://tug.org/pipermail/macostex-archives/2007-June/031054.html
