This is a bug in xdv2pdf. It was fixed some weeks ago in the source  
code, but there hasn't been an updated package yet. So if you get the  
source and build it yourself, you'll get rid of the bug; otherwise,  
you'll need to wait for the next release (in December, I hope; I'm on  
the road until then).

I believe that if you have occasional font changes breaking up the  
body text (e.g., headings, emphasis, math, etc) then the bug will not  
show up; it only happens with long runs of a single legacy font.
