When pdftops converts the attached PDF file into PS with -r 300 -level3 command line parameters, and when SimSun TTF font is available in the system, SimSun font gets embedded ~80 times into the resulting PS file, making it grow up to ~2 Gb, which not every printer would be able to congest.
It would be nice to have it embedded just one time or just a subset of characters.
Tested on poppler 0.18.4, 0.19.0, 0.20.0, 0.22.3, 0.22.4 on Ubuntu 12.04 x64 and Ubuntu 10.04 x64.
