Description of problem:
Cairo exports font names in their original form. But these can be wrong, they can sometimes contain white space characters or PDF/PostScript delimiter characters. Such fonts are not common but they appear.

This can cause a problem when you are printing such file in evince. The printing fails during processing of an intermediate PDF because there are delimiter characters where they shouldn't be.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run "pdftocairo -pdf test-cff.pdf result.pdf"

Actual results:
Font names in result.pdf contain white-spaces characters and delimiter characters.

Expected results:
Font names in result.pdf don't contain white-spaces characters and delimiter characters.

Additional info:
Fix was already pushed upstream, see
