acroread cannot read ps2pdf file

I'm using ps2pdf to convert postscript files to pdf. The converted pdf opens fine in xpdf/gpdf/kpdf etc., but fails in acroread on both windows and linux. The acroread error is "A drawing error occurred". I'm using Adobe Acroread 7.0.1 on linux and 7.0.5 on windows. Ghostscript pdf conversion is 8.15. I've used the commands ps2pdfwr, ps2pdf12, ps2pdf13, and ps2pdf14, all with no success. The OS is Mandriva LE2005.

These are the associated Mandriva packages:
