David, sorry to have a counter-view: In the past 17 years of using FM and Acrobat I always got incorrect pdfs with this option checked. Until Acrobat 9.5 it was (re)set with every update of Acrobat and I had to uncheck it frequently. However, the effect from checking or unchecking this option may depend on the system (or more sarcastic: from the water level in the toilet). I wonder what 'our' expert at Adobe (Dov Isaaks) says about this option.
