Description of problem:
Trying to print some files I'm getting weird results - some characters are shifted to the left or right from their correct position (as displayed on screen).
I've narrowed down the problem to poppler, I can easily reproduce it by running a pdf through the pdftops command (which is used in cups pipeline).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. pdftops input.pdf
see the attachments
see e.g. the word "stříšku" where "Ř" and "Í" are too close to each other
the comma after "vchodem" touches the "M"
in "může", "M" and "Ů" are connected
the period after "2" isn't visible as it looks like a part of the "2"
and so on ...
all files rendered the same
trying to convert the same file via pdf2ps from ghostscript, it works, the characters in the resulting ps are placed correctly

This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
can't reproduce with poppler-utils-0.22.1-4.fc19.x86_64
