I saw this on another list.
I think it has something to with the fonts not being recognised by
reader. It was generally acknowledged as a bug in reader, but no one
had a work around.
What if you produce the LaTeX output as dvi, then pdf it?
When printing your original file, can you tell the printer to print
all postscript errors?
And, try printing to PDF.
