Hi Johannes,

as a workaround you could export into EPS-files (works quite well) and 
then convert these with ghostscript, ghostview etc. into PDFs. That's 
what I did for my pdfTex-documents. I did it with a small shell script 
but the call to ghostscript could just as well come from inside a 
notebook (Run etc.).
