PdfSharp throws exception during loading compressed PDF document. I am not sure if all compressed documents but I have tested on pdfs generated by Microsoft Reporting Services 2008.

I have found the problem in PdfSharp.Pdf.IO.Lexer class in method ReadStream.

I have changed it to below code and the compressed pdf are processed correctly now:
 public byte[] ReadStream(int length)
      pdf.Position = idxChar;
      byte[] bytes = new byte[length];
      int read = this.pdf.Read(bytes, 0, length);
      Debug.Assert(read == length);
      // synchronize idxChar etc.
      this.Position += length;
      return bytes;

Can any body incorporate that changes in PDFSharp for future releases.
If required I can send example of pdf file which can not be opened.

Thanks jacekdt - very very much appreciated.

I was also having the problem of a blank PDF being created when I was using PDFSharp to merge PDF's created from .rdlc reports.

To clarify for anyone else having this issue, it is still present in the PDFSharp code & binaries as at 2013-01-11, version 1.32.

To apply the fix that jacekdt came up with, download the source code, open the file:
(you'll need Visual Studio 2010)

Then in the project, expand the folder:

and open the class:

Simply replace the existing ReadStream function with the code that jacekdt posted above.

Rebuild the solution, and you'll have a new binary to include in the \bin folder of your own project.
