Dear friends Wybo and Orlando

The problem was with my version of Acrobat Reader (v 4.0).
With Acrobat version 5.0 it is OK. 
For your reference a .png file with a screen capture of the problem is attached.

Thank you a lot for your prompt and useful help.

I have no problem with your pdf, it includes nicely.
But it contains a TrueType font (TimesNewRoman), so
could it be your Acrobat Reader? I have version 5.0.8 under linux.
