Well, yes, but why does it *only* happen with this Scribus PDF form? I
have *never* seen this behaviour before.

Hm, did you open the PDF with Acrobat 5.0 or 6.0? The behaviour
is present in 6.0 as well, but not as visible. In 5.0, it is very much
visible. And not only on my machine :)

Not possible. Nothing's faster than localhost :) And if 100 MBit/s
isn't good enough, well.... (No, the 100MBit/s don't have anything
to do with localhost.)
