Notes VSI-Fax - having coverpage problem with outbound imaged .pdf attachment

I am using a VB module to send .pdf documents through Notes Email to the Fax Server.  I have cover pages turned off but for some reason if I send a one page document, the recipient is getting two pages....the first page is empty excpet for it contains an image of the icon for the file that is attached (example: if I send a file called test.pdf, then the page has the adobe acrobat icon with test.pdf writtern under it), the second page has my imaged pdf file correctly.  I have cover pages turned off but for some reason cannot figure out how to remove this.  My thought is that it appears to be printing the body of my email as the first page, since when I send the emails to the fax server the attached file is all that appears in the actual body.  

Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions?
Thanks

It isn't a cover page, it is a software limitation.  VSI always puts attachments on a new page.  So, it is trying to send a one page empty body together with a one page PDF.  Want to prove it?  In your VB code, before embedding your PDF, do an appendText so there is some text on the page.

You'll see, you will still get a two page fax, and the first page has your appendText message, the second the fax.  Unfortunately, I know of no way to prevent VSI from sending a one-page blank fax when you fax an empty e-Mail message.
