 Fixed that odd behaviour tonight in both development branches. Both
 Acrobat Reader 5 and 7 do no longer report these fake fonts.
 For Craig to know, it was caused by an entry in the Fields dictionary
 of the PDF files, as soon there is an /DR entry pointing to a Ressource
 dictionary, even when this is empty causes Adobe Readers to report these
 nonexisting fonts.
