Presentation that reproduces the bug

I have a presentation (a sample of which is attached for the purposes of reproducing this bug) which uses the font Helvetica Neue. It looks OK in the presentation itself, but when I export it to PDF the letter spacing goes seriously awry, to the point of making the PDF unusable. :-(

If I open the exact same .odp file in LO 4.0.6 and export it to PDF, the issue does *not* present itself; the resulting PDF file is fine.

Appears to work fine here under MacOS 10.6.8 using v4.3.0.3 Build ID: fcd3838c4097f7817b5b3984fd88a44e1edd8548 (x86) but please check the attached as I have no reference to work against.

Status set to NEEDINFO. Please change the status back to UNCONFIRMED once the the provided attachment has been checked / a newer version of LO has been tested and the results reported back here. Thanks.
