Well, after spending an entire day on this, I've finally tracked down the offending code as line #144 in PDF::API2::Util

my $value = sprintf('%.'.abs($ad).'f',$f);

After making the following changes it worked:

my $temp='%.'.abs($ad).'f'; $temp=~/^(.*)$/; $temp=$1; my $value = sprintf($temp,$f);

For some reason, the working server had the modified code already in it. Don't have a clue how that happened. I'm the only one messing with the perl on these servers and even though I'm forgetful, I didn't think I was THAT bad!
