Description Peter Humphrey 2004-10-06 03:15:14 UTC
I receive periodic PDF files from an estate agent which are displayed fine by KPDF but not by KGhostView; the latter shows just the first text string and three sides of the box around it, then nothing at all.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to open the file

Actual Results:  
As described. 

Expected Results:  
File should be displayed properly. 

See attachment for a specimen file that is shown properly by KPDF but not by

I think this bug is more related to ghostscript as kghostview is a frontend to it and the example pdf is not showed correctly also with gs (at last with ESP Ghostscript 7.07).
