    'Malformed xref' when creating in Acrobat 9 Pro

      I used a perl-based reader on a server to distribute PDFs from a website -- this has always worked, but any PDFs created with Acrobat 9 are not readable by the perl readers.

      I get "Malformed xref" error.

      I used the SAME file & saved in both 8 & 9.

      In 8, there's a chunk like this, which is missing in 9:

      xref
      5 20
      0000000016 00000 n
      0000000894 00000 n

      Can anyone shed some light?
