For the Ricoh and Samsung printers, we printed the raw PDF directly
over JetDirect (port 9100).  For the Brother, the "upload PDF"
function was used.  So no outside printer drivers involved.

If I run it through Ghostscript, that somehow fixes it:
gs -dPDF -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=print.pdf foo.pdf

But Ghostscript also seems to rewrite the font, at least in FontForge
it shows a different scale.

Are there any tools to analyze this CID font stream?
