Dear list,
does anyone encounter problems displaying/printing PDFs in Tiger?  
Since upgrading I have massive troubles in Preview, TeXShop,  
BibDesk's preview and with the PDF Browser Plug-In when I open and  
print PDF files. Sometimes just images are displayed, sometimes just  
cryptic characters, sometimes just section titles, sometimes just  
text paragraphs without headings, sometimes just one specific font in  
a document is displayed, sometimes everything is fine. I can't  
reproduce it, seems to happen randomly. I have various screenshots on  
my public ftp at ftp://ftp.geosci.usyd.edu.au/pub/users/christian/ 
PDFproblems in case someone wants to have a closer look. I have  
googled for this and also searched the Apple Discussion pages but  
haven't found a solution nor anyone else experiencing this kind of  
Everything is perfectly fine using Acrobat, so it appears to have  
something to do with the native OS X pdf kit. Furthermore, this only  
happens on my G5 not on the Powerbook (also running the same version  
of Tiger).
Any clues?

Cheers, Christian
