I have done so.

Okay.  What is your preferred way for me to make files available to the list?

I just tried that.  PDFReader renders the black border, and the CUPS
logo graphic, but none of the text.  I used File -> Save as Image to
export the failed render.  You can view it at [1], and the original
PDF is at [2].

So, if it is working for you and not for me, I figure that the problem
has something to do with my operating environment.  This is Gentoo
Linux x86_64 with KDE.  I tried it on Windows Server 2008 64-bit, and
it worked fine there.  I then tried it on Ubuntu with GNOME and got
the same result as Gentoo/KDE.  Any ideas what could cause the same
pdfbox JAR to render text on some systems but not others?  Is it
having trouble acquiring fonts, perhaps?
