just FWIW, when I tried printing page one of "problem.pdf" from Acrobat 7
(WinXP) on my 600 dpi laserprinter, the resolution was "reasonable", that
is to say the small text was clearly legible. Not perfect, there was slight
fringing on edges as you expect from a JPEG file at medium quality.
However page one in the PNG example above is (I would estimate) about 8
times lower in actual resolution and the small text is in no way visible,
since individual pixels are the size of entire letters.
With this kind of resolution loss I could not describe it as anything but a
bug. I would expect only a factor of two loss even for the worst-case
scaling errors in the worst algorithm, and of course it should be much
less. I don't know exactly where the bug is, though.
