The file at
causes Acrobat Reader 5.0 (as installed on Sussex University's Windows
network) to crash. I can't access the log file that AR says it has
written, so I don't know what the problem is.

Some relevant facts:
- it views OK using AR3 and gsview (Windows), also with xpdf, AR4, gv
and kde viewer (Linux);
- the file was produced using pdflatex (Linux) and CM type 1 fonts from
TL6; similar files produced using TL5 aren't a problem;
- there is no problem if I change from CM fonts to tx fonts.

Is there some mismatch between AR5 and the CM fonts on TL6?
