Description Wolfgang Thiess 2003-06-01 10:31:59 UTC
Open a PDF file with acroread (i.e. 
http://www.wolle-hamburg.de/Bugs/acroread-5.06-r3/sample.pdf) and select "Edit/Find...". 
Find what: Enter "Something". Click "Find". 
 
The result is: 
No occurrences of: 
Something 
were found in the document. 
Click "OK" and acroread is blown. 
 
The same happens using original PDFs from Adobe:

this is an upstream problem ... 
 
at the adobeforums a user reported it happening on Redhat, Mandrake, and Gentoo ... 
basically it means theres nothing we can really do about it ;) 
 
just sit back and wait for a new version to come out that resolves the problem 
Comment 2 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2003-06-19 19:00:27 UTC
