Hi Stefan,

thanks for the quick response and fixing.
I'm not super keen about getting working annotations, just about a 
non-crashing viewer. Since about every pdf-viewer has its own 
interpretations about those, I had to drop them anyways eventually …

Still, good to have a bug fixed :)

Thanks again,
