I compared the files from GS 8.70 (with proper translation to Unicode for all
characters except the hyphen) and from GS 8.71 (no translation to unicode at

They both contain a ToUnicode CMap, in fact the content of this object is the
only difference between the files regarding the embedded font.

Where does this ToUnicode CMap come from in the two cases?
Looks like this is the place where the change occurs.

Does this help locating the change?
