If this is an issue with 2.0.4 then I would be concerned.  It was fixed  
for 2.0.3 - at least certainly for the version we have on our active  

Delivering with Apache is fine until you need to restrict access using  
Cocoon based user controls.

To summarize my understanding of the issues with PDFs...

* If your end users don't use any PDF plugin then everything will work  

* Certain Adobe PDF plugins combined with certain browsers require a  
correct file size to be returned in order for download to work.  There  
are a lot of people out there with IE, PDF Plugin combinations that  
experience this issue - so it is a *real* issue if it doesn't work.

Here is the closed bug which covered this last time:
