I've been having troubles getting pdfopt to work on pdflatex'd files.
With both GS 6.50 and 6.61:

[08:33:55] wesley:~/gs6.61/lib $ ../bin/gs -q -dNODISPLAY -- pdfopt.ps resume.pdf opt.pdf
ERROR: file position incorrect by -1

That file was 13d... I've also tried 14f and files from 12o.  I only
see this problem with pdflatex'd files... anyone else see this?

Let he who takes the plunge remember to return it by Tuesday.
