I wonder if you also see another oddity that I find in my Acrobat Reade
5.x on Linux.

While viewing your form if I drag the scrollbar to the bottom, I dont
reach the bottom and get stuck somewhere in the middle. In other words I
cant see part of the bottom of the form.

However if I use the pan tool (the hand) to drag the document up, I can
see the bottom of the form. Is this another reader specific oddity?

I have seen this happening on some PDFs before . e.g. some OOo created
PDFs which have been encrypted using pdftk.
