This appears to be an Acrobat bug. Ghostscript, Jaws and the Apple PDF viewer
all display the resulting PDF correctly. MuPDF, like Acrobat, displays a black
rectangle but this is a known limitation of MuPDF which, in its current
version, does not handle Type 3 font glyphs which use colour.

It seems Acrobat suffers the same limitation at least for glyphs using colour

It is possible that there is a pdfwrite bug here, but 3 PDF interpreters with
no common heritage all give the same correct answer, Acrobat is odd man out, so
I think its an Acrobat bug
