Since pdf2swf doesn't actually know it 'failed', how can you possibly check?

Without patching the relevant source code, the only way round I am able to think
of, is to parse the vervose output,

     pdf2swf -vvv your.pdf -o your.swf

for the incorrect shape fill line.

Now the matter has been broached again, maybe a patch will be implemented?
