Any ideas?  I'll jump into the source code if I have to, but I'd rather not.  Thanks.

Matthias,

Thanks for the response.  I believe the version I am running is 2007-02-06-1213.  Keep in mind that I am using the -f flag so that I can search the text; however the text is no longer merely an invisible overlay, as in acrobat, but is actually visible on top of the image.  Here are the exact commands I am running and all output (using the same test pdf from before).  Thanks for the help.

I:\Tools\swftools\snapshot>pdf2swf.exe -v -f -o C:\Users\Trevor\Desktop\testout.swf C:\Users\Trevor\Desktop\test.pdf > C:\Users\Trevor\Desktop\verbose.txt

Doesn't happen on my machine-
which pdf2swf version are you using?
