Export PDF plot or Save Selection As -- big troubles with Illustrator

Create a combined Plot/ListPlot in 6 using Show having some lines with 
their Thickness[] increased, some points with their PointSize[] 
increased.

Export plot as PDF or Select either the plot itself or the complete cell 
and Save As Selection. Open saved file in Acrobat; it looks fine (though 
document size is not what I want; it's just big enough to enclose the 
plot, and I'd like letter size).

Open same file in Illustrator CS 11.0.0 on Mac (only way I know to 
change document or artboard size of a PDF file).  Plot looks horrible: 
Line thicknesses are hugely thickened (though axes and frame seem OK); 
point sizes, oddly, seem OK; text size for tick labelsseems shrunken.

Any idea what's happening here???  Seems fair to call this a bug -- 
somebody's not doing right by the PDF format.  But, an Adobe bug or a 
Wolfram bug?
