I have a rather strange problem with the sanitizer 1.25. Somehow, a few
files gets corrupted after going thru.

The PDF-format is allowed thru without modification (says the config), and
the log says nothing. Since the problem only (so far) shows up when we get
PDF's from a given source, I suspect there are some metainformation in the
files, but why should sanititzer care?

Let me give an example. The file "bau36.pdf" is the result after a normal
PDF has been examined by sanitizer 1.25. My next message will include the
original file.
