Not true. The printed version looks incorrect as well.

For anybody who wants to test this problem, here's a test file:

--- BEGIN TEST FILE ---
\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}\usepackage{amssymb}
\begin{document}
$$\sqrt{\dfrac{1}{2}}$$ \\ $$\left(\dfrac{1}{2}\right)$$
\end{document}
--- END TEST FILE ---

The printed version has truncated radical and parentheses when printed
from TeXShop or Preview. However, Acrobat views and prints this just
fine.

Ugh. Hope this isn't a NSPDFRepresentation bug.
