I used latest Fedora 7 build on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 to open (a
NetBSD advocacy flyer) PDF and hit the same problem. I have the
debugging symbols and will look into the problem shortly.

Just for the completness, I ran 32bit ppc build on a 64bit ppc machine.

Feel free to use our bug tracker ( http://pdfedit.petricek.net/bt/main_page.php)
if you find some problem.
