pdf output

I'm not sure yet how to fix the problem, but in the sample I sent
earlier if I change:

5 0 obj
<< /Length 11 0 R >>


5 0 obj
<< /Length 1239 >>

then both gv and acroread can process the file without error.

This seems to be a cross platform bug and unrelated to fonts -- at least
I am able to reproduce it on Linux.

There was a small typo in the recently added support for non-rectangular
clip paths. Fixed in r3829.

(Jouni -- you may want to review this and verify that my change is correct.)
