comment Unable to generate PDF/A with `marvosym` package
I added the fontenc package, but it didn't help. I check PDF/A compliance with either Adobe Acrobat Pro or the upload tool of our University's library.

comment Unable to generate PDF/A with `marvosym` package
This doesn't solve the stated problem. As egreg already stated I am looking for PDF/A compliance, which isn't fulfilled as the \Libra symbol uses glyphs that are not included in the embedded font.

comment Conditional Linebreak for back references
Thank you for the updated solution, and the good explanation. By now, it works almost everywhere. Though, there are some instances in which a new line is started for the back reference for no apparant reason. I update my original question again with two wntries taken from my bibliography.

I added a small example, using Heiko's (unfortunately wrong) answer from below as a basis.

actually after having (correctly) copied your example, I see that it doesn't produce what I wanted. I add a modified version of your solution to my initial question to show the probem.

Thank you, that did the trick. Could you please explain, how this worked? EDIT: I just saw, that it didn't work all the time. I try to produce a short example.

comment Disable binding compensation for titlepage
Thanks, that worked. Though, typearea yields some warnings now, but I think I can live with them - especially as I know that using two different documents and combining them afterwards would be the cleaner solution.

comment Modifying \title without recursion problem
Thanks for these methods. I didn't know abotu \xdef.

comment Modifying \title without recursion problem
Thank you for the answer. But in my case this would not work as the new title is a concatenation of the old title and something else, e.g. \def\inserttitle{new prefix \inserttitle}, And this will cause and infinite recursion in latex.

comment beamer: How to place images behind text (z-order)
Thanks for the additional tips. Putting the code after loading our theme didn't work. Adding to the headline template instead of the background template shows the images, but they are again on top of the text. As this was quite frustrating, I played around with our theme and your code. In the end, I found that I simply had to move the backgroundblock up by one slide height, as it was added right below (vertically speaking) our background that spans the entire slide.

comment beamer: How to place images behind text (z-order)
Cool, thanks for the solution! EDIT: Sadly, this still seems to interfere with our beamer style. With default styles it works nicely, but with the official style the background block always seems to be empty; or -what I assume- it is behind the background which is probably a tikz rectangle spanning the slide.

comment Color distortion using transparent images in non-beamer documents
Actually, as stated above by myself the solution given in your two links to treat page groups with transparancy in a special way does not work in my case.

comment Color distortion using transparent images in non-beamer documents
Sure, this would be the cleaner solution - bring the prospective readers to avoid Acrobat reader. But as we provide lecture notes for a large audience, telling them all to use a different PDF viewer specifically for our material than the de-facto standard viewer would make us look bad.

comment Color distortion using transparent images in non-beamer documents
The beamer workaround still works in our environment (TexLive 2009, Acrobat Reader v7 and v9 - both under Linux). That said, I just checked the results with Acrobat Reader v10 under Windows and here the workaround even works for the non-beamer document.
