Kghostview fail to show this file:
I made it using pdflatex, and other pdf viewers
(acrobat, xpdf) have no problems showing it.
Does kpdf open it?

Yes, kpdf works. Perhaps the bug is with LyX, as it was LyX that decided to
use kghostview as a pdf viewer because it was available.
I thought pdf was a subset of ps though, so a ps viewer ought to display
pdf documents as well?
