It would be helpful to state in what way it 'fails'. Do you mean it gives an
error ? Produces an invalid file ? Crashes ? Something else ?

For me this enters an endless loop processing the ToUnicode CMap for the SimSun
font. Since the ToUnicode CMap is normally only processed when the device is
pdfwrite its not too surprising that Alex didn't discover this earlier.

Since the ToUnicode CMap is handled in the PDF interpreter leaving assignment
as is for now.
