Hi again,

Just one more thing to add.

This is the same problem as reported 3 years ago on SX:


A couple of days ago, I requested it be reopened ...

At any rate, I (or Thanh or whomever) need an example demonstrating the
failure that can be run.  Maybe you can make a self-contained set of
files (the font(s) in needed formats, the tex source, etc.)?

… and now we have the MWE, sent in me previous message.

— When it gets through on the list, that is. It’s held up by a limit of 40kb !!!!

I really do not think that anything related to generating PDF/A from LaTeX
documents can anymore be described as being "too localized”.

Maybe someone can add a comment saying something like:
 “we now understand the reason for this, and expect a fix to be available
 in TeXLive by late 2016 or 2017."

We try to keep the type1 code in sync between dvips and pdftex, so it's
sad that the results differ.  Clearly something is awry :(.  --thanks, karl.
