Geoff solution is very real. My htdig site is 99% PDF; in the beginning,
it was totally failing because of the size problem.
Now is it just fine.

If you have a problem only with one document, maybe the problem is with
the PDF file. Try to manually:
        acroread -toPostScript file.pdf

a see what Acrobat says. Maybe the document has an open password. Maybe
it has the "can't print" security option set. Maybe it is damaged in
some way.
To unsubscribe from the htdig mailing list, send a message to containing the single word "unsubscribe" in
