[reportlab-users] Problem with embedded font, help needed

Hello, this is slightly offtopic because I can't reproduce this problem using
only reportlab, but I am at my wits end and this is the only list I know with
people who know about PDF files :-(

Basically: on some RARE occasions, which I can't isolate yet, sphinx+rst2pdf
will produce, via reportlab, a PDF with a font that's not embedded correctly,
and then the file has no visible text in it.

I hve uploaded one such file here:

Anyone has access to a preflight tool that may tell me what's wrong with it?

I have processed every most parts of that file producing decent output, but
when it's all done at once, this happens.

Thanks in advance for any help.
