Is it the single quote apostrophe that is causing the problem, or, is
it something
else ?   Were I to pass the string with the french special character
\['e] it is the
'é' that gets dropped and for the word Séance I get Sance as a bookmark.

Is the string that gets passed after the trin an \[\[aq]e] ?

The goal is to have all diacritc chars flow through without being dropped.

Have you tried processing the pdf produced from -T pdf through gs,
ghostscript can accept pdf as input as well as postscript. This may
allow you to use your normal commands to control the pdf production.
