I have run into the exact same problem.  I have personally tried Pitstop and
had the same error occur.  Other people that have several industrial
strength preflight tools said that the PDFs I made out of FOP crashed all
their programs.  The only preflight program I can get to read the PDF is
Flightcheck.  Plus, certain versions of Photoshop(5.0) and Illustrator(8,9)
also do not like the file format, while Acrobat Reader reads them fine.
This is a problem that I too would like to see solved.

Subject: Running Prefligh PDF tools on PDF files produced by FOP

I'm using FOP to produce PDF eBook files targeted for Adobe eBook Reader. It
produces beautiful output, with internal links for the contents etc. These
files can be viewed in both Acrobat and the eBook Reader without error.
However, most eBook distributors place requirements upon submitted files and
make checks with various preflight packages.

PitStop by Enfocus (http://www.enfocus.com/products/overview.php?nr=3) is
one of the most common tools used for this purpose. I am finding that for
all PDFs produced by FOP (including those from the sample FO files) PitStop
stops and complains of a 'Fatal PDF Error' on the first page. It does not
provide anymore information than this. I am not experiencing the same errors
with PDF files produced by XEP or Antenna.

I realize that this query may be more appropriately targeted to Enfocus.
However, any insights or help would be much appreciated.
