I have seen similar PDF and Flash issues when installing a new Apache
server on a new box.  Did you install the Apache software to a new
server or is this install using the exact same PDF data directories?

I ask because if you copied the files between servers how do you know
they are binary identical?  In my case the files were about 5 bytes
out of sync -- not enough to break them but just enough so that other
"issues" came up making the whole mess hard to troubleshoot.
