[Swftools-common] Incorrect character in conversion using -s storeallcha

Hi all,
PDF2SWF seems to have an issue with converting/embedding text in some
actionscript 9 converted documents. I have only seen it happening to
the character "f" oddly enough but it could possibly happen in other
scenarios as well. The effect can be seen when using GetText in
actionscript or searchText on textsnapshots. It basically cannot find
strings with the character "f" as they have been incorrectly
converted. This has been tested in the latest snapshot build and 0.9.1
with the same result.

1) Convert this PDF : http://www.berr.gov.uk/files/file53157.pdf using
the following parameters:
pdf2swf file53157.pdf -T 9 -s storeallcharacters -p 5-5

2) Use swfdump to see the result:
swfdump -t file53156.swf
...   at Budget 2009 to invest in the UK\x19s basic capabilities \x16or
Where \x16or is where the "f" character should have been. Everything
else seems to be ok.
Any clues?
