This sounds suspiciously like an encoding issue. In Adobe Reader, your 
PDF file is said to include the CM fonts in "Type 1 (CID)" type and 
"Identity-H" encoding. I'd never heard of this one! Have you tried 
using instead the Latin Modern fonts in OpenType format installed by 
the TeX i-Package in /Library/Fonts/Latin Modern/?

In any case, I seem to remember from previous posts here that 
Illustrator (and probably other Adobe software as well) has problems 
with the CM fonts due to their odd encoding. I don't remember whether 
any solution was proposed.
