Recent texlive 2008 installed on Linux Slackware 12.0 system.

I have a file that I can process via texexec and which shows up fine 
on my Acrobat Reader, kpdf or xpdf. However another person using 
(probably) Windows  keeps getting corrupt file errors when he tries 
to read it.   And when I try to run the output pdf through pdf2ps it 
blows up with this message:
 **** Warning:  An error occurred while reading an XREF table.
   **** The file has been damaged.  This may have been caused
   **** by a problem while converting or transfering the file.
   **** Ghostscript will attempt to recover the data.

Other pdf files on my system, built on other computers etc. process 
fine through pdf2ps.  I took out all the advanced stuff, such as 
bookmarks, interaction and urls but I still get the same kind of 
error.  An old pdf version of the file, dating back to February, also 
blows up. 

The preamble to the file plus dummy text looks like this: 
This blows up on pdf2ps also. 

 I just created a dummy pdftex file, compiled it, then converted it 
with pdf2ps with no problem. 

Either there is an error in my preamble or something fishy with 
Context.  Thoughts?
