I have had the same problem with the acroread distributed with SuSE-7.2

Try starting acroread, then in

   File -> Preferences -> General

uncheck "Smooth text and images".

I don't know why this happens -- it seems to depend on the X display
you are using (it doesn't seem to like 24bbp -- OK in 8 or 16 -- on some
graphics cards).

Hope this helps,
