There is something in the final segment of the page which is causing Acrobat a
problem. If I remove the last block of content then the file can have headers
added with Acrobat 9.

NB the header/footer manipulation can be performed using Acrobat 7 on the
original file, so this is a change in the behviour of Acrobat from version 7.

Having said that, the file content cannot be edited in any version of Acrobat
that I have, and the message when attempting to 'add headeror footer' in Acrobat
9; "An error was encountered while retrieving page content" does suggest
something is wrong with the generated PDF file. The same problem occurs using
HEAD, though the user is using the (rather old) 8.61 version.

It will take some time to reduce the PDF file further to isolate the actual
offending content, and then fix it. 

I don't believe this is a general problem, it seems to be specific to the
content of this job, possibly its related to the enormous amount of metadata
being written using pdfmarks, this information is not present in the file
produced by Active PDF (resulting in a considerably smaller PDF file...)
