Description of problem:
The URL gives the output of a document printed using abiword-2.2.8-1.fc4.
The character spacing is quite wrong. The font used is Bitstream Vera Serif, but the same problem exists for any other high-quality font I tried (Adobe, Bitstream, ...). This seems to be a problem of gnomeprint as opposed to Abiword, since it occurs also with Gnumeric. The linked PDF is identical to the paper output generated by an HP LaserJet 6MP printer.
It does not seem to depend on any installed printer.
This problem effectively makes gnome-print based applications effectively unusable.
