I am using this method to plot a pattern in-between two curves. If I save the file as PDF version 1.5 everything looks great. Unfortunately the journal that I am submitting the paper to requires PDF version 1.4. When I use pdflatex and generate a PDF 1.4 file (or use gs to convert it afterwards), the pattern goes outside the bounds of the lines. Is there any work around to this?

Is this related to pgfplots? Or does it happen with a plain tikz picture and such a pattern as well? – Christian Feuersänger Apr 15 '13 at 14:44
This seems to be only a problem with the viewer. The screenshots above were taken from 'evince'. Once I opened the file in Adobe Acrobat, everything was fine. If a moderator wants to mark this question as closed that is fine with me. – OSE Apr 15 '13 at 15:25
Ok. I also observed drawing issues for patterns/shadings in evince. Apparently, it is a little bit buggy. – Christian Feuersänger Apr 16 '13 at 19:03
