I certainly seems so.
Tested with fontspec.pdf from CTAN on SUSE 10.1:
- xpdf 3.01 crashes on page 4, bt indicates freetype 2.1.10
- kpdf 0.5.1 and evince 0.4.0 crash on startup
- gs 8.15.1 crashes on page 1
- podofobrowser crashes with 11 ePdfError_NoObject
- AR 7.0.8 has no problems

But after mangling fontspec.pdf through pdftex 1.40 (with pdfpages)
everything's fine (although gs still crashes, but 8.15.1 is simply to
old). :-)
