error with basemap and pdf

Michael Hearne <mhearne@...751...> writes:

I have attached a PDF created with matplotib/basemap. On my mac,
Preview opens this file without any errors. However, Adobe Acrobat
9.2.0 (Mac) reports this error:

"An error exists on this page. Acrobat may not display the page
correctly. Please contact the person who created the PDF document to
correct the problem."

This is probably a bug in the pdf backend. Ghostscript 8.62 complains
with "Error: /nocurrentpoint in --run--". This suggests that an "m"
(moveto) command is missing somewhere. I'm too busy to debug this today,
but please file a bug in the tracker.
