[gs-devel] Problem converting a PDF to a TIFF

I have a process setup to convert PDFs that I receive into TIFFs using 
Ghostscript and it works flawlessly except for documents from one 
vendor. The documents from this vendor return the following errors when 
the conversion is running and the resulting TIFF has various spurious 
characters in place of what should be English characters. Viewing the 
original PDF document in Adobe Acrobat Reader works without any issue.

I searched on the warnings and found several references to Asian 
language fonts, but there are not Asian fonts in the document. I made a 
CIDFMAP file to map all of the fonts referenced in the file, but I did 
not see any change. Unfortunately, I can not post the source document 
because it has confidential information.

Thanks for any advice on this.
