It sounds like a problem with the code, but it is hard to say without seeing it.
Also, take a look at this example. It might help you spot the problem.
I had a look at your link, and tried it on my server - which is CF8. It crashes.
The tag does not allow the attribute(s) TEXT. The valid attribute(s) are ACTION,ATTACHMENT,COPYFROM,DESTINATION,FOREGROUND,IMAGE,
How broken IS this? All I did was take the example cfpdf tag and change the source name to my source document.
Server reports version 8,0,0,176276. This is plain not working for me.
UPDATE! - The article referes to 8.0.1 - the above is 8.0.0 - is this the issue? has cfpdf changed that much between versions? Where can I find a list of changes between these versions?

Yes. Check the release notes for updater 1. It will list the changes/fixes. Since you are not using 8.0.1, just use an image watermark instead of "text".
<cfpdf action="addWatermark" image="#pathToYourImage#" source="mypdf" foreground="true">
Otherwise, post your code. Without it we can only guess ;-)
Issue was server was 8.0.0, needed 8.0.1 patch to work for this function.
