I have reported this problem already in the newsgroup comp.text.tex; so
if you followed that thread, just skip to the end of the message.

When I included an eps-figure using fonts from the LucidaBright font
family, the letters disappeared in the (dvips generated) ps-file. (See
the attached test examples)
  From the answer in the newsgroup I conclude that the problem is caused
by partial font downloading. Using the -j0 option for dvips solved the

I think that I really should use partial font downloading, especially
with the commercial fonts. Therefore I would suggest to alter the
algorithm in dvips concerning the encoding: In the current version the
encoding vector is zeroed out at the beginning.
