Description Jonathan Underwood 2009-01-19 10:03:05 EST
Description of problem:
If I take a pdf file which has some transparency in it and use pdftops to convert it to a postscript file, I lose the parts of the image with transparency. Same thing happens if I print to a ps file with evince (which is presumably using the same libpoppler code). Test files attached below.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.pdftops FranckCondon.pdf
Actual results:
FranckCondon.ps doesn't contain the background grid

Expected results:
FranckCondon.ps should contain the background grid

Additional info:
FranckCondon.pdf was created in inkscape and exported to pdf using the cairo backend.
