Dear all,

(please keep the ccs)

we got a very interesting bug report hear in Debian: Short version:
The simple file:
hello world! 

Compiled with TL 2012 does not open in Acrobat (various versions and
platforms), while displaying fine in Preview/evince/okular.

Compiled with TL2009 everything works.

Although the bug report was based on Debian version of TeX Live, I 
could confirm the same misbehaviour with a clean TL2012 installation.

The test files and all the necessary images can be obtained via
	git clone https://github.com/tacaswell/pdflatex_bug.git

Details are in the email below.

I don't expext that we fix that before release, but it might be
worth investigating.
