Resolution: None


Initial Comment:
Hello,

pdfTeX complains
  Error: Illegal entry in bfrange block in ToUnicode CMap
for valid cmap entries, when a PDF file is included.
The CMap entries are, for example:

1 beginbfrange
<0041><0041><0041>
endbfrange

The error disappears in case of

1 beginbfrange
<41><41><0041>
endbfrange

The error is in function CharCodeToUnicode::parseCMap1 in file
libs/xpdf-3.02/xpdf/CharCodeToUnicode.cc

In case of poppler the problem is already reported with patch:

http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/poppler-bugs/2010-April/004931.html

The appended test file can be processed by "pdftex --ini", "pdftex" or
"pdflatex".

Yours sincerely
  Heiko
