Well, I disabled plugins in a previous version in response to the  
problems you and others were having.  I'm frankly not motivated to  
install Adobe's crapware and try to debug the problem on 10.3.x,  
since I can't even build TCOBrowser on 10.3.x anymore.

I think what should happen is that after you click the link, it gets  
handed over to your default web browser for download; you could  
bypass this by control-clicking on the PDF link to save the file.

All this should do is hand the URL to the default application for  
that type; if it's http or ftp, it should open in a browser.  It's  
basically the same operation as double-clicking a webloc in the  
Finder.  I can't explain the log messages, but it certainly appears  
to be related to Adobe's plugin.  It would be interesting to know if  
this problem occurs with all applications which use WebKit to display  
web content, or if I'm doing something wrong.
