Currently, pdftotext/TextOutputDev extracts control characters like form feeds from the PDF. These should be filtered, as the users expects form feeds to be inserted by pdftotext alone.
In the attached PDF, there is a form feed character (0xC) extracted between the word "sich" and the following formula. The form feed is - AFAICT - actually a character from the CMSY10 font.
