Graphics render in evince but words & type do not.

We have been happily printing DHL shipping labels from evince for ages, but
today its stopped working.  Doubtless DHL has changed something about the way
they produce these.

Evince reports these errors:

Syntax Error: font resource is not a dictionary
Syntax Error: Unknown font tag 'F1'
Syntax Error (3631): No font in show

If I open this file in ghostscript, some poor font substitutions are made and
then its almost ok.

This may not be a bug; maybe its a problem with the pdf source.

Hi,
I guess that it a problem with the pdf source. I tried to open the attachment in ghostscript. It actually showed the text, but at the same time wrote the following errors to stdout:

   **** Warning: Tf refers to an unknown resource name: F1 Assuming it's a font name.
   **** Warning: Tf refers to an unknown resource name: F2 Assuming it's a font name.
>>showpage, press <return> to continue<<


   **** This file had errors that were repaired or ignored.
   **** The file was produced by: 
   **** >>>> Toolkit http://www.activepdf.com <<<<
   **** Please notify the author of the software that produced this
   **** file that it does not conform to Adobe's published PDF
   **** specification.

I will suggest that you report this to DHL and activepdf.
