inspite of the risk that this has been reported already:
Using pdflatex 0.14f with hyperref-package: I set document
information using the
commands in the \hypersetup block of the LaTeX source.
I can use the acrobat reader to check these settings.
NOW: I had a file I prepared in August/September 2000 with
a version of pdftex before release 0.14f. Everything was fine.
After upgrading (Debian GNU/Linux system) to 0.14f I found that
the (same) acrobat reader (as before) gave an error message
when I wanted to look at the document info, of a pdf-file
generated from the old sources with the 0.14f-release.
Looking at the PDF-source directly in emacs confirmed that the
corresponding parts of the pdf-file seem to be broken.
Removing some of the \pdftitle, \pdfauthor, \pdfkeywords, etc.
commands in the \hypersetup block the document info was fine again.
Acrobat reader didn't complain any longer.
MY DIAGNOSIS: 0.14f has a newly introduced bug. If the amount of
text in the document info section becomes to long pdftex produces
erroneous PDF data.
