I'm having a bad time exporting PDFs from mathematica. The problem seems 
to be down to having a plot using "Dashing" in its PlotStyle. It works 
just fine within mathematica, and apparently can export a PDF file. 
However Adobe Acrobat says "Illegal operation inside a path" when I try 
open it, though Preview is happy to open it.

I usually want to open the PDFs in acrobat to crop white margins as they 
seem to always come out of mathematica with a bunch of space underneath.

Is anyone else having problems opening exported PDFs in acrobat, 
particularly with dashed lines?

Thanks in advance for any help,
