Adding XMP data to a PDF causes different kinds of mutialitions of the original pdf.

                 Key: PDFBOX-680
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-680
             Project: PDFBox
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Writing
    Affects Versions: 0.7.3
         Environment: Windows XP
            Reporter: Rene Smit
            Priority: Blocker
             Fix For: 0.7.3

We are using PdfBox for a Material Workflow application for one of the major Newspaper publishers
in the Netherland.
One of the things we use PdfBox for is adding MMP data to the XML file.
Doing this causes different kinds of mutilation of the original pdf.

The way in which this occurs varies. Sometimes a character is altered, sometimes an element
or complete ad is mutilated, sometimes the color of/in an ad is changed.
These files also tend crash Adobe Acrobat (Professional 9, with Pitstop Professional) (not
all files);
The files also may create a "Failed to open PDF file" when trying to place it InDesign (not
all files). 

We use the following source in out application:

			InputStream pdfStream =  Core.getFileDocumentContent(pdfFileDocument.getMendixObject());
			PDDocument pdfDoc = PDDocument.load(pdfStream);
			PDDocumentInformation pdfInfo = pdfDoc.getDocumentInformation();
			IMendixObject materiaalMetaMendixObject = xmpDocument.getMendixObject();  
			Set<String> memberKeys = materiaalMetaMendixObject.getMembers().keySet();
			for (String memberKey : memberKeys) {
				Object member = materiaalMetaMendixObject.getMember(memberKey).getValue();
				if (member!= null) {
					String memberString = member.toString();
					if (memberKey.startsWith("XMP"))
						pdfInfo.setCustomMetadataValue(memberKey, memberString);

			pdfDoc.save(pdfOutputPath + File.separator + fileName);
