Fixed. Thanks!

That's to be expected. The -s option requires an argument, which, in
this case, is "filename.pdf" (which is a parameter (filename.pdf=1) 
which will be propagated to (and ignored by) all parsers and rendering 
devices throughout the code). 
So you don't have any input file in the above command.

In this case, you're setting the parameter "-T9=1". This, too, will
be ignored.
What would you have expected the parameterless -s option to do?

I don't know much yet about form fields- especially how they are
specified in the PDF file. Until I found time to look into this, I
guess you'll have to dig into the xpdf code yourself.
(I noticed that xpdf *does* specify a function "drawForm", but if
 you disable that, the forms will still be rendered, so this seems
 to be something else)
