No, it's pdfTeX-specific and results from the way PDF files are  
structured. Using dvips + Ghostscript solves the problem, if you don't  
need features that only pdfTeX provides (like font expansion, hanging  
punctuation, PNG or JPEG file inclusion). If haven't tested dvipdfm,  
maybe it works too.
