3) What is expected to happen is when one performs at the Terminal:

cd ~/Desktop && wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openoffice.org/+bug/689349/+attachment/1763870/+files/classnetwork.odg && lodraw -nologo classnetwork.odg

File -> Export as PDF -> Save button

Then perform at the Terminal:

acroread classnetwork.pdf
evince classnetwork.pdf

it looks the same in both evince and acroread.

4) What happens instead is acroread displays erroneous red dots, while evince does not.

Where are the red dots? Could you provide screenshots *and* the exported PDF file please.

Tor Lillqvist, thank you addressing this. Attached are the PDF and screenshots (with pixel-sized dots highlighted) as requested. For myself, the pixel-sized dots are actually black (original reporter noted red), but may be different based on platform/version of acroread one is using, IDK.

Thanks for showing where the dots are, I wouldn't have noticed otherwise.

I can see the dots also in a PDF exported from LO on Windows.

I do not think that it's useful to duplicate a Bug report containing all required information to one without pointing the method of resolution.

So I reverse the DUP definition, because the reason for the problem is very well described in Bug 37559. 

The problem has nothing to do with the PDF Viewer, but with really existing extra dots in the drawing, what will be shown sometimes in some Viewers under particular circumstances, and sometimes not.
