Sounds like that these are all xpdf issues, particularily with
softmasks and transparency groups.
I hope that there's a new official xpdf release soon. Derek did a
lot of work into fixing issues like this, and his prerelease versions
work much better with most of these features.
If you can't wait, consider getting an xpdf support contract.

Since all of your issues are with variations of transparency, consider
reconverting your PDFs to PDF 1.2 or PDF 1.3.
