Why kpdf sucks so much?


one of the many reasons I looked for KDE 3.2 was introduction of 
kpdf. I like xpdf, but its user interface is kind of strange, so 
when I heard about kpdf it looked like marriage made in heaven 
for me. However, apparently kpdf has some problems with font 
display (see two screenshots: http://www.ceplovi.cz/matej/tmp/
xpdf-sshot.png and http://www.ceplovi.cz/matej/tmp/
kpdf-sshot.png to see what I mean). Needless to say, that all 
fonts are included in the displayed PDF file, so there shouldn't 
be any problem with their reading.

There does not seem to be much of documentation for kpdf as well, 
so I do not know where to begin.

Any thoughts?
