Symptoms

PDF output loses its font reference to Arial. Instead the font is mapped to "DeviceFont10Cpi"  ("DeviceFont")

From Acrobat Reader:

Document Information -> Fonts

the font reference is AFM font.

The Reports font mapping file, uifont.ali, has been confirmed not to be the cause for the incorrect mapping.
