I have tested this four different ways, as well as opening the file in a
text editor and basically found some *very* mild corruption in the file,
mostly where the font names are stored. (Another reason for XML files..)

I rebuilt the file, by creating a new doc and then importing the pages
one by one. Then it exported perfectly.

I would send you the rebuilt file, but I want you to try this on your
system and let me know the results. Moreover, I am working on 1.1.1 CVS
which has some changes to the file structure which might not be
backwardly compatible.

With clean files, I have never seen problems with Scribus PDF export and
export PDF constantly. Crashes can cause some corruption, but
reimporting pages into a new file fixes 90% of the problems.
