Topic: illegal operation 'm' in text object

Currently I'm using acrobat reader 4.0 (on WIN 2000) to view all of the pdf documents that I manually and my pdf's display just fine. But when trying to view my pdf file on acrobat reader 5.0 on a WinNT machine I get the error illegal operation 'm' in text object.

Now I found another post here on planetpdf with the same error only with the 'n' operation as the culpret. Is the newer acrobat reader pickier then 4? Because inside my pdf all I'm doing is drawing a line using the 'm' operator to move to a certain x,y coord. Is there something syntactically I'm doing incorrect here??

Thanks much!!!!!

Here is my stream where I draw the line:
