Created attachment 25833 Sample Chart created with BIRT 2_3_1.
When running pdftops on the attached small PDF file (4K), the result Postscript file is 560K. Trying to manipulate the program with command line arguments (level3, ...), did not yield any improvement.
With XPDF 3.0, the PS file size is <20K.
It seems that the code attempt to convert the small chart into high res image, resulting in loss of precision, large file, and long printing/viewing time.
The PDF file was generated with BIRT - Ecplise Reporting platform.
I'm build/run poppler or RedHat 4
