Great! 2 Open Source applications which exhibit the bugs. Now Roman  
can compile a debug version of one of them and try to track down where  
it breaks. Thanks for the report!

> Adobe Reader 7.0.8

But not for all PDF files. I have some files which work just fine, and  
some files which immediatly trigger the bug. Starting acroread without  
any filename on the command line worked just fine every time for me.

Roman reported to me it works for him. Can you please provided use  
cases where it doesn't work?
