One thing you might try is to trip the RL pdf through postscript. We do this
sometimes to see if the problem is caused by our code. Typically we do it by
export to postscript from acrobat reader followed by convert to pdf with
distiller. If your printer can do it print the postscript and the final pdf. If
those are successful they may give information about what's wrong with the RL
