Hmm, well, hadn't tried that.  Craig is always on top of things!  ;o)

It uses xpdf for it's base and I just got a security update to that, so 
maybe that part was fixed too.  Probably not, but at least it's getting 
more attention than Adobe is giving Linux presently.  I'll have to say 
though, I haven't managed to get it to crash on anything I've tried and 
it does render the fonts better.
