Indeed, e.g. I am not reading MacOS mailing list, but texhax.

The example can be reduced to (beamer is way to complex):

\hypersetup{pdfborder={0 0 0}}

I have added sanity checks for some options that directly write
PDF code. For example:
  \usepackage[pdfborder=0 0 0]{hyperref}
would end up as "000" in the PDF file, because LaTeX
strips spaces. Also nothing stops from writing:
  \hypersetup{pdfborder={funny invalid stuff}}
The result would be invalid PDF files.

However I forgot a backslash in the pattern to escape "[".
Fixed now in hyperref 6.81o.

Yours sincerely
