Seems odd. I cut and paste your snippet below, stuck some headers on the
front and added:

Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="----_=_NextPart_000"

and loaded it into mutt. Mutt decoded the attachment as:

6 0 obj
<</Length 7 0 R/Filter /FlateDecod

Looks like PDF to me. Is the content-type set correctly?
