I guess it could be - I have PitStop installed, and have never used
Acrobat 6 without it. Nonetheless, I am under the impression that if
it's a plug-in it's one that ships with Acrobat.

Advanced -> PDF Optimise

and in the resulting dialog, click on the "Audit Space Usage" button.

BTW, I was able to crash the Acrobat 6 Demo I was testing earlier by
trying to preflight the ReportLab font sample documents. I'll try the
final version to see if it still happens and let you folks know.
