The attached document apparently has some problems with the embedded Type 1C fonts in it. With gs 9.02, it reports errors and replaces the problematic fonts with system fonts:
$ pdf2ps NovopashinMuriel2002_IsTheCriticalReynoldsNumberUniversal.pdf **** Warning: can't process font stream, loading font by the name. **** Warning: can't process font stream, loading font by the name.
**** This file had errors that were repaired or ignored. **** The file was produced by: **** >>>> Mac OS X 10.6.7 Quartz PDFContext <<<< **** Please notify the author of the software that produced this **** file that it does not conform to Adobe's published PDF **** specification.
gs directly also reports:

The poppler pdftops output when printed produces the following error on the printer:
ERROR: invalidfont OFFENDING COMMAND: definefont
/Font -dictionary- /RDNCVK+RusTimes-Pandre-LightItalic
It would be great if poppler could detect the same issue and do the same font substitution.
