Clicking the reload button does not reload the .ps or .pdf document currently

Reopening the file works.

I've noticed that GV does not seem to have this problem for ps files.  However,
for PDF files, GV puts up an error message when the reloading:

Fixed in rawhide.

Is the rawhide fix broken?
Or is the rawhide fix not yet in FC1?

Comment 6 Gustavo Maciel Dias Vieira 2004-03-03 21:09:57 UTC
At the time the rawhide fix was ok.
I'm using FC1, ggv-, and everything is still ok.

Comment 7 Tethys 2004-03-03 21:58:59 UTC
Curious, because ggv- on FC1 still *does* have the problem
for me...

Comment 8 Bart Martens 2004-03-03 22:09:41 UTC
Marking this bug back to "closed rawhide", the way it was.

Tethys, two other people just tested this with ggv-, and the
reload button seems to work fine. Let's go back to bug #117169.
