I'm not seeing the problem at this end with the most recent version
of mom, so which version of mom are you using?  If it's recent,

  pdfmom -z -dVERSION=1 foo

at the prompt should spit it out.  If that returns nothing, look in
the file 'om.tmac'.  The version is just underneath the copyright
notice.  If your om.tmac is stock, it should be located at


If you've downloaded mom from her website, look inside the om.tmac
you're currently using.
