Is there a limit on the number of pages that can be in a pdf file?  I am
using pdf() (on R version 1.4.1, running on Red Hat 7.1 on an Intel box)
to create a large (> 300 pages) file of diagnostic plots.  If I plot
every figure I want to include (364 pages, according to Acroread ver.
5.0.5), neither xpdf on Linux nor Acroread ver 5.0.5 on Win98 can render
the file.  xpdf give the error message:

Error: Kid object (page 1) is wrong type (null)
Error: Page count in top-level pages object is incorrect
Error: Couldn't read page catalog

If I eliminate 32 plots, the file renders correctly in xpdf (I haven't
tried Acroread).
