Hi Hans,

The bug is in the PS generator built into Acrobat.  The PS file generated has
some funky things going on with the encoding vector for the fonts.  Slots 0 --
31 are not encoded at all, and this is the cause of the problem.

Adding an Encoding object to the PDF file "fixes" the problem, because Acrobat
then writes out a correct enough encoding into the PS stream it generates at
print time.

Strange bug, if you ask me!
