Missing non English characters when PDF is password protected

When I create a normal PDF file, my document looks fine.
But when I try to create a password protected PDF file I get an error message in Adobe Reader (Unable to find/create font Arial)

I use a code:

lPdf:=TPdfDocument.Create(false,0,false,TPdfEncryption.New(elRC4_40,_UserPassword,_UserPassword,PDF_PERMISSION_NOMODIF))

lPdf.Info.Author        := mainProgramName;
lPdf.Info.CreationDate  := Now();
lPdf.Info.Creator       := mainUserName;

I tried to use an EmbeddedTTF option, but it doesn't helps.

P.S. Autor and Creator informations also can't be read when PDF is password protected (both are written in unreadable characters and Creation Date is empty)

What can I do?

Does it work with English-only (A..Z) characters?

Yes, it does.
There is problem with polish characters only.

So it sounds like an encoding issue...

I've downloaded the newest version (2019-11-15) from GitHub and I still have the same error (unknown Arial font)
