[pdftex] Problem with hyperref to create a PDF/A

Hi David,

Thanks for your solution.
I tried it but not with pdftex, and it does not work. I got the same errors.
I never use pdflatex because each time I tried the images did not appear.
However, I tried yesterday just to test your hack, but again, I could not
convert the PDF into a PDF/A. Maybe I should try with 5, 6, or 7...

However, all works fine (from a PS file) if I disable hyperref, but my
document isn't the same...

Let me know if you have ideas. I'll keep searching on my side and post the
solution if I find one.
