Dear Developers,

     I have updated the OS of my computer to ubuntu 15.04 amd64 edition recently, and also update TeX Live to TeXLive 2015 from the ubuntu source.

     Then I found that when I use xelatex to complie my tex documents with some eps files which are produced by Adobe Acrobat Pro 9(my eps file come from pdf files), some error will occur like follows:
[27Error: /undefinedresource in resourcestatus

       But under TeX Live 2009 in Debian 6 and TeX Live 2011 in Ubuntu 12.04 and TeX Live 2013 in Ubuntu 14.04.02, They all works well with the same eps files.

       I tried to use pdf2ps and ps2eps command to re-produce the eps files from my source pdf files. The new eps files can be complied, but the quality is much lower than before.

        I attach a source pdf, a eps file produced by Acrobat 9 and another produced by pdf2ps and ps2eps command for reference.
