After doing some "debugging" i have found out that the error occurs
somewhere between acrobat and kprinter - if i click "open file" in
kprinter (where file is "/tmp/Acro000P9qPen"), i can see the same old
"~~~" where the text should be (in KGhostView).

So this is probably just acrobat producing borked output. Nothing to see
here, please move along...

But this also applies to ggv etc. - but here i can't even read it, its
full of strange symbols everywhere.

Haven't tried gpdf, then. I just havent got any great experience with
it... Ill try that (and dump bug reports at ggv and adobe)
