refman.pdf - bookmarks & links broken (PR#1677)
Sun, 16 Jun 2002 02:34:23 +0200 (MET DST)

This is not reproducible with a clean build from the sources of June 15
using the recommended tools.

If you still find a problem with the current R-patched, please supply
details of how exactly you built refman.pdf, including the version numbers
of pdftex, hyperref, latex, etc.

And verified by your own build on what system?  Your subject line implies
the problem is in R, not a particular binary, so we must assume that you
did build refman.pdf yourself.

Please verify that by looking at the PDF file in a text editor and checking
that there is an invalid link for `(-class' (no matching right
parenthesis).  If there is, the file has not been generated by R-patched
recently.  If not, it is not the same bug.
