Description Ian Mortimer 2005-07-11 03:50:35 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
Running kdvi on any .dvi file (or at least any that I've tested) gets:

   File corruption! KDVI had trouble interpreting your DVI file. Most 
   likely this means that the DVI file is broken.

The file displays mostly ok but with digits sometimes appearing in 
strange places (like headers and titles).

The same .dvi file displays perfectly on Fedora Core 3 (kdvi 1.2,

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kdegraphics-3.4.1-0.fc4.1,  kdvi 1.3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Grab any .dvi file or create one with latex
2. Open the file with kdvi

Actual Results:  The above error message is displayed and the document doesn't look quite right.

Expected Results:  No error message and the document displaying correctly as it does with kdvi 1.2
on Fedora Core 3.
