comment Using opacity in TikZ causes strange rendering in Acrobat.
Regarding the comment about bloatware and Acrobat: I frequently use the acrotex package for creating math quizzes. Acrotex uses document level javascript to create buttons, mark solutions, etc. As far as I know, it is only Adobe products that can handle this.

Apologies for my noobient bad housekeeping. Yes, the issue is resolved by using evince or xpdf; the problem is with the Adobe reader. I've looked around the site and haven't noticed anything about closing a question; how should I do this in future?

comment Using opacity in TikZ causes strange rendering in Acrobat.
Now I'm feeling pretty stupid :-( I should have tried another reader earlier and saved myself some aggravation. Acrobat is the culprit - it doesn't seem well-suited to Linux (has a tendency to crash my OS) but it seems to be the only browser that handles DLJS stuff when I use the acrotex package. Thanks very much!
