Isolating the graphics one by one would be approach. I have a hunch it'll
be a .PDF or .EPS; maybe conflicting versions of PostScript or something
obscure like that.
One important item you left out of your description is whether you're using
the distiller head that's installed by the FM distribution or have a
complete version of Acrobat...
