Another possibility is the excellent pdfpages LaTeX package, which can extract and recombine in any possible way pages from a PDF file, and also work not only with PDF but also with any file format than pdfTeX and XeTeX can import (PNG, JPG, etc.).

For an example of use that should appeal to a physicist or to a mathematician, see <http://people.maths.ox.ac.uk/~macdonald/aands/> (the TeX source is inside the tar.gz archive). The same approach was used at <http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/~aps/research/projects/as/>, though the source is not given.

That said, I don't know whether/how pdfLaTeX is affected by the OS X bug.
