Actually, this is exactly what he did but it produced a corrupt pdf
on his side. So he contacted me but I could not reproduce it. That's
why I told him to post the above plain TeX example, which is the
smallest possible example I could make that's running perfectly
well on my side but produces a corrupt pdf on his side. Note that
I tried it with exactly the same pdftex version!

I was curious to know if someone else on this list could reproduce this
problem. Olivier is running Debian and I know that there are other
people running Debian on this list.

Ciao
