previous editions of the pdf-spec required the files startxref tag to be within the last 1024 characters of the file. you file has 2 such tags within this boundary. the latest pdf-spec requires the startxref tag immediately prior to the files end-of-file marker which leaves no room for trailing comments which are generaed by some real world applications. i have changed the search boundary to 64 bytes, which reads your file correctly and is unlikely to break older files. the fixes are available with PDF-API2-0.48 on CPAN.
