What other viewers besides Apple Preview have this problem?

I don't have a Mac so I am unable to reproduce the problem. I have made some
changes to the font embedding and attached a sample pdf. Could you check if
this pdf displays correctly. If Preview has a font properties dialog similar to
acroread I would be interested to know what font type and encoding is

Have you seen any pdf files with this font type that does display correctly in
Preview? It would be helpful for me to look a one of these pdfs to see how it
differs from the cairo pdf.
