the pdf interpreter in some (all ?) HP printers is not able to properly
interpret ascii85 encoded streams when confronted with
whitespace between the two terminating characters ( ~> ) .
I have read the ascii85/pdf spec and think the current reportlab
behaviour is correct. Nevertheless i think the printers won't be
able to correctly work with such documents in the near future.

As a workaround i have removed the _wrap call .
