That why i was saying that a command-line switch to disable the "randomized"
behavior should exist. The change seemed trivial enough.

I understand that, but generating the same sequence over and over just seems to
be a compromise for easier automated testing, not for an actual working&tested
product.

For now we'll go on by using pdftk, which seems to handle multiple
fonts-same-name case correctly, but its too bad one would have to use 3
different applications all with their own quirks and bugs and usage patterns
simply because the standard isn't very clear for a specific issue, and that
issue could easily be fixed by any of the 2 applications involved in this
chain...
