Good point. I have a pretty good track record of being an idiot[1] but
look at the test PDF (attached, generated from trunk). What do you see?
To my eye that text is 5 inches up the page, not 2.5 and when I look at
the generated raw PDF commands it doesn't smell right.

Please take another look and let me know your thoughts.
