Looks like I have a guessing what's happening... dosn't include anything usefull by itself, that's just a=

Even while is correctly installed into /usr/pkg/lib, dynam=

object factory init_xxx call.

Well, that's just mine vision of this bug. ATM i'm trying to fix it.

=46rom my understanding that's due to if Konqueror cannot run kghostview pl=
it runs kpdf instead. This two ones can be easily distinguished by poor=20
rendering quality of kpdf :)
