Likely so.  I guess it should be upgraded with the acroread7-7.0.8,1

I'm thinking if the problem is caused by the
linuxpluginwrapper-20051113_4.  The shared object file
/usr/local/lib/pluginwrapper/ the wrapper supplies might not
be sufficient for the new of the acroread7.

If so, that's a bug.  Has anyone else been caught by this error?  I
couldn't find anything related in the current bug reports.
