PDF file problem

A user of Mutopia has encountered the following problem when printing out
some PDF files from the archive. I'm at a loss to explain the problem - has
anyone else experienced this, or has anyone got any ideas? I don't have
Windows on my machine but I'm sure people have printed out our PDF files
using Acrobat Reader without difficulty before.

Fur Elise was compiled a while ago with LilyPond 1.2(.17 I think), but
Bach's Invention 13 is relatively recent, and was compiled with one of the
later versions of LilyPond 1.3.

Of course, I can always recommend that the user tries GV/Ghostscript, but
I thought I'd see if anyone can shed any light on the problem first.
