Hallo pdftexdevelopers,

there is a bug in \pdfxform. See the next example:
-----------------------
\pdfcompresslevel=0
\footline={\hfill}%
\setbox0\vbox{\hsize8.75cm\noindent Ahoj}
\pdfxform attr{/Matrix [1.2 0.25 0.3 1 0 0]} 0
\pdfrefxform\pdflastxform
\end
-------------------------
The result XObject looks like:
------------------------
1 0 obj <<
/Type /XObject
/Subtype /Form
/Matrix [1.2 0.25 0.3 1 0 0]
/BBox [0 0 248.031 8.856]
/FormType 1
/Matrix [1 0 0 1 0 0]
/Resources 6 0 R
/Length 69
 >>
stream
1 0 0 1 0 -833.034 cm
BT
/F1 9.963 Tf 0 834.971 Td[(Aho)-55(j)]TJ
ET
endstream
endobj
------------------------
See the double /Matrix entry. That results in ignoring transformation by 
Acrobat (R) v.6 and 7. (v.4 and v.5 is OK). I believe that it is 
(exceptionally) bug in pdftex not in Acrobat ;)
