Could easily be that the pdf is too complex, and/or pdf2swf itself is
running low on system resources and memory.

Try using one of the various levels of verbose, i.e. -v[v][v][v] in your
command..  It should give you a rough idea of what pdf2swf was actually
doing when it bailed out, or got stuck thinking.

You could also try running pdf2swf with increased privileges, with no other
( or minimal ) programs running, compatibility mode, or even  in Safe Mode,
It may help.  No guarantees though, there. ;o)

To get round the issue with the problem page(s), try converting them separately
from the rest of the document by judicious use of the page range option,

    -p, --pages range

i.e. split the document into sections.

pdf2swf quite often behaves much better, under Linux.
