note that with respect to math.GM/0612111 my response, which should
have been relayed to you via arXiv staff, was that there was a typo in
your tex source file,


and that was the apparent reason the colorlinks option wasn't working
for this paper.

You never followed up on that, you never corrected your arXiv'ed source.
arXiv admins hand-corrected your submission for you recently.

In the meantime Heiko Oberdiek, upon my suggestion, also implemented
an improvement to hyperref, which allows proper override of system
wide .cfg file options with user settings. arXiv's hyperref.cfg indeed
interfered with option colorlinks before that and you could have
accelerated finding a solution to it by communicating with arXiv.

While arXiv staff is trying hard to assist, they cannot help you if
you don't follow up on their advice, and if something doesn't work get
problems passed on to upper level TeX support.
