Topic: Missing pictures, PDF viewed on-line

We generate PDF files using our own software. They usually contain a couple of JPEG images (/DCT encoded) and because we're so lazy we've just ignored Adobe's recommendations and made them inline images (not XObjects).
The PDF files themselves work fine when you open them with Acrobat Reader (we're using version 4.05, for Windows).
The problem occurs when we put the PDF files on our website (we're using Apache on a Linux server) and then try to view them on-line inside the browser using Acrobat's browser plug-in. (We're using Microsoft Internet Explorer 5). Some of the JPEG images don't appear in the PDF! It's funny - because it's never consistent which ones appear and which ones don't.
The only solution is for our clients to download the PDF files to their computer and then view them with Acrobat. This is a bit of a pain.
The PDF files we generate are not "optimized".
I don't know if the problem is with the encoding, the web server, the browser, or with Acrobat.
Here's the URL of a problem document (I've got many more!)
Any help or insight will be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
