Hi Heiko,

    Thus "0 0 Td" is missing in the current pdfTeX version.

This is terrible news.  I expect it is related to the "fake space"
feature that was introduced in this version.  I will discuss with Heiko.

    The problem is quite serious


    is quite out of date. 

Yes it is.  Neither Thanh nor I have had the time/energy to update it,
and no one else has done anything with pdftex for quite a while now.

    Also the bug report address at sarovar does not seem to work anymore.

Yes, sarovar has been dead for some time (and unfortunately all the
tracker info was lost, though perhaps it will eventually be restored
somewhere).  I think ntg-pdftex at ntg.nl is theoretically the best place,
although writing Thanh and me directly is a good idea.  Unfortunately
there are no active trackers right now.
