Sometime in September, Christoph Sch?fer proposed the following: 

| That PDF is broken. You can, however, open it with Adobe Reader, print a 
| PostScript file and import the result as a vector file. This will export to 
| PDF just fine.

I suspected as much about the broken PDF. I tried your solution: 

Adobe Acrobat --> save as PS --> Import into Scribus --> Export Scribus document as PDF 

And a few variants of it and they all crash the program. Perhaps I'll see
what photoshop can do with it. Does anyone know of any software (commercial
or otherwise) that can fix broken PDFs? I have the full version of Acrobat
if that is any use.
