Sorry, it should read:

It is not sure - at least STF did *not* say so - the PDF file Adobe Acrobat 
Reader didn't display was produced by LyX.
And in case it came from LyX then it's a problem with the LaTeX-PDF-writer 
tools used by LyX.

So, probably it will be difficult to solve this issue for LyX developers.
