My version of gv will show my article, but barfs at p8, 13, 16, 17,
and probably onwards (didn't check them all). That's been updated to
v.6.0 whereas stock RH6.2 is 5.50.

Xpdf reads it fine and printing it to a file from there also yield
something readable with gv, as does running pdftops on it. So probably
something is up with ghostscript and/or Acrobat.
