Old Adobe bugs never die, they just shade away.

On Windows 98SE, using FM V5.5.6, I create swatches of the seven FM shading patterns made up of diagonal, horizontal, vertical, and cross-hatched lines. Then, I print to a .ps file, using Adobe Postscript Printer Driver 4.3.1 and the Distiller 4.05a PPD, specifying a resolution of 2400. The Distiller job options are set up with no compression of graphics, text, or line art. In the resulting PDF, all of the shaded swatches are displayed and printed as pure white. In earlier versions of Acrobat, they all appeared as the same shade of dark gray. A recent post by Shlomo Perets indicates that the problem persists in FM 6.0.

This problem has been with us since FM 5.1 and Acrobat 2 if I'm not mistaken. Why hasn't it been fixed?
