Yes, there is a bug in the code that was inserted because
of memoir, the code already evaluated \paperwidth at package loading.
Thanks for reporting.

Corrected now in 2009/12/14 (TUG server, CTAN tomorrow)

I also have removed the paper options (a4paper, ...), hyperref now
only relies on \paperwidth and \paperheight (\stockwidth, \stockheight
in case of memoir).

Yours sincerely
