When printing to cups-pdf from applications that use PDF as the printing format, the PDF output from the application is converted to PostScript using pdftops then back to PDF using Ghostscript. This turns a perfectly good PDF file into a crappy PDF file that does not display images correctly and the text is not selectable. If the print job is already in PDF format, cups-pdf should just pass the file through unmodified or at least avoid the PDF->PS->PDF conversion.
