After three days of losing hair, I fixed it. And it **may** be useful for
someone else in the future:
DO NOT TRY TO SAVE A PDF TO A STRINGIO.
It looks like it works, it gives no errors, and then it **may** strip the high
bits of some pieces of the file, breaking it in unpredictable ways.
That's all :-)
