Default InvalidFont error

We're seeing an occasional error message when importing EPS files from our legacy classified pagination system:

"EPS Import: InvalidFont error"

The problem files distill fine, and the resulting PDF can be imported. All fonts in the PDF report as Type 1.

InDesign CS2, Mac OS X 10.4.6 and 10.3.9. The error occurs on multiple Macs.

It does NOT occur in CS1.

If anyone's interested, the file is available here (5 meg file). The ad that seems to be the problem is the one at lower right.

The ads on the page were exported as EPS from MultiAd Creator, then sent through to a Harris classified database & pagination system. The page eps is printed to PostScript from the Harris system.

As it turns out, deleting the font caches and rebooting cleared the problem.
