Do your remember the steps to replicate it, even if it doesn't work all the time?

You should embed Symbol Fonts when exporting to PDF.

The font rendering on the Screen is a complex problem. Some fonts do a little
overlapping of their Character Bouning Boxes, most notable for Italic Fonts.
When editing a Text I must clear the Area the new Character occupies and then
write the new one. With Italic Fonts you always erase some of the Char before,
because the erased Area is a Rectangle. But the rendering should be ok when
not in Editing Mode.
For the PDF Output it is advisable to embed the nonstandard Fonts always,
everything that is not Times, Helvetica or Arial should be embedded.
