[pdftex] Problems with pdftex.map

I have some problems with pdftex.map. Here are two
sample files:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%  dummy.tex  %%%%%%%%%%%%%

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%  test.tex  %%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Now dummy.pdf has embedded the font `URWPalladioL-Roma'
whereas test.pdf has embedded `URWPalladioL-Roma-Extend_820'.
But the font of test.pdf should not be extended.

My pdftex.map contains the following two line (in this order!):

pplr8rn URWPalladioL-Roma ".82 ExtendFont TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc <uplr8a.pfb
pplr8r URWPalladioL-Roma "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc <uplr8a.pfb

If I change the order of these two entries in pdftex.map, the
file test.pdf will have embedded `URWPalladioL-Roma', which is
the correct font.

Must the entries in pdftex.map obey any special order? Is it
right to change the order of these two entries or does this
cause any other problems?
