Illegible rendering with Type-3 fonts

For some pdfs, poppler renders illegible output: The fonts are rendered as very bold. I guess this to be due to the Type3-fonts used, but this is really just a guess.
I attached an example, and also three screenshots (poppler: bad; mupdf: ok; masterpdfeditor: good). Acrobat under Windows also looks fine, but I don't have a screenshot.
