Topic: Digital Signatures-Printing Problem

I've encountered a problem while developing a custom digital signature plug-in for Acrobat 4.05c for my company.
I used the sample code in the SDK as my starting point. I am using Microsoft Certificate Services as the source of my certificates and the Microsoft Crypto API for my validation. I save the certificate chain with the document for later validation. Everything seems to work fine.... except when I try to print a document with a non-visible sign & save signature on a network postscript printer. It prints the first page and then I get ERROR:undefinedresult OFENDING COMMAND:currentpoint. If the document is signed with a visible signature it prints fine. This error seems to be related to an intelligible postscript symbol. Another kicker is that the same sign & save document will print fine in Acrobat 4.00 and Acrobat 5.0, just seems to be the problem with 4.05. I left the plug-in code that handles the signature annotation virtually untouched since it seemed to work fine. Has anyone encountered a similar problem?
