I have not experienced this because we upgraded to Acrobat 4.0. Part of the
reason we upgraded, though, is because the Adobe web site stated that there
is a Y2K issue with the 3.0 Distiller.
I'm not sure which part of the web site you were checking, but if you go to http://www.adobe.com/aboutadobe/year2000/prodlist.html and scroll to the
bottom, there's a note about the products with exceptions. Acrobat 3.0 is
one of them. (They have an asterisk by it up under the compliant products
list, meaning it has an exception.)
Hope this helps, even though it might not be the answer you want to hear.
