Just noted this thread. Here's something for y'all to look at: how was it 
saved, from what editor, and with what options?

We had a thread on another mailing list I'm on, on the same subject. 
Different editors, saving as pdf, or file converters,  can add *tons* of 
extra stuff, and store it incredibly inefficiently.

Try to turn the file to .pdf in another manner, and check the default 

Certified lunatics are shut up because of their 
proneness to violence when their pretensions are 
questioned; the uncertified variety are given the 
control of powerful armies, and can inflict death 
and disaster upon all sane men within their reach.
