what readers are you using? The Scribus team prefers Acroreader and sometimes
kpdf which is improving quite much.

Unlike M$ the folks at Adobe are wise enough to publish the specifications.

And if you only have to implement it, it's a lot easier then
reverse engineering some M$ file-format.

I think you should either change your reader or send those
PDFs you can't open to the programmers of that reader.
