I'm not sure that I am in favor of accepting such egregious violations of
the PDF spec and loading ghostscript withcruft to work around it, potentially 
slowing things down.

If this were an important customer or a common emitter of PDF that just
happened to "make a mistake" that's one thing, but in this case the /Info
shows lack of respect for PDF conventions:

Keywords: ROOT
Creator: ROOT Version 5.24/00
CreationDate: D:20110518193212

I'd recommend that the patch be reverted to force the creator to fix
their problem, and this be closed as WONTFIX
