It seems that when rendering a PDF with an eps embedded in it, it won't show up
in a GhostScript viewer/renderer with version higher than 8.x. 

However using GhostScript 7.06 the eps does show up. And by showing up I mean
transforming the PDF to PS (and optionally back to PDF using GhostScript or
Acrobat Distiller). This is the known trick of PDFs with eps's that don't show
up, but after the transform trick, they do.

I've tested this on a windows2000 professional machine, using fop 0.20.5 and
GhostScript. The GNU GhostScript 7.06 works for me

and GhostScript 8.14 doesn't
