There are a few possibilities. One is that your max_doc_size
attribute is too small for your PDF files and so they're being
truncated.

<http://www.htdig.org/attrs.html#max_doc_size>

The other possibility, as the messages say, is that one or more of
your PDF files is actually damaged. In that case, the best thing to
do is to run htdig with more debugging turned on and send both STDOUT
and STDERR to a file to peruse. Obviously the files reported just
before this output would be ones to check.
