    Compound path appears solid when saved as PDF

      I've got a bit of a mystery here. I'm using CS3 and saving a business card as PDF.  The company logo is a compound path.  If I save it as PDF, the logo appears solid in Reader (and other viewers) and rasterizes solid in Photoshop.

       

      If I release the compound path and perform an exclude (or make it compound again), it saves and appears correctly.  I've checked attributes, styles, or anything that might mess with the path - nothing.  It's just a white shape, nothing fancy.  Other formats (AI, EPS) appear correctly, and the PDF ppears correctly in AI.

       

      What could possibly be going on?  Maybe a bug?  I've attached a greatly simplified PDF to show the issue.

       

      Thanks,

      Chris
