[OS X TeX] OT: PDF display problems

I posted a problem with pdf on Tiger to this list just after 10.4
came out. My problem is that I cut equations from the texshop
preview (I usually use a blank document format with just an equation
on the page) to an Omnigraffle figure. I do this to label figures
with latex-type symbols. I then export the omnigraffle figure to pdf
and include using includegraphix in the standard manner.
With 10.4 preview, some of the equations on the figures print "fuzzy"
despite looking good on screen. If the same pdf document is opened
with 10.3 preview or AAreader, then it prints fine (i.e., the figure
equation/symbols come out at high-resolution).
Odd think is that it happens only on some of the figure-symbols. I
never got any feedback on this problem and have been waiting for a
10.4 upgrade to make it go away.
Does anybody else have this issue? Do you know how to report to apple?
