the PDF in the attachment of your e-mail contains in object no. 1 a
broken LZW stream (but the RMItd24.pdf is ok.). This can't be forced
(easily) by macro programming, so it could be some bug in the old pdftex
version or its xpdf library used for creating the PDF file. My current
pdftex-1.50.0-alpha here doesn't produce a corrupted PDF.
