cfpdf, processDDX, AFPL Ghostscript, FlateDecode

If anyone could help point me in the right direction with this I'd be very grateful.


I have a routine that takes PDFs from a database and watermarks them using the cfpdf tag with action="processDDX". This works fine 99.99999% of the time.


However, it would appear that when it encounters a PDF containing text, and in the PDF's properties it says, "PDF Producer = AFPL Ghostscript", the watermarking process fails and cfpdf gives back the error, "failed: FlateDecode Filter".


If the PDF Producer = GPL Ghostscript, or indeed anything else, there's no problem.


Has anyone encountered a similar error to this before, or does anyone have any advice on where to look?
