Here's a testcase.
In sid it works fine, but if I use the jars provided in testing it

Important: the pdf file is "protected" , so it's necesary bouncycastle
to decrpyt it. Normal pdf files don't fail because they don't need

Attached sample pdf and sample java that counts the pages of a pdf. 

Sid. It prints the expected output 

pages = 1

In Testing: throws this exception:
