Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    Anyone using PDF and the showpdf tool are affected by this
    issue.
    
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The showpdf tool will segfault for some profiles when the
    PdfMap and PdfBinary files used are from different compilation
    instances.
    The showpdf tool requires the PdfBinary and PdfMap files to be
    from the same compilation instances (thereby having the same
    compilation timestamps),
    else information from both files will not match up.

    and PdfMap files from different compilation instances.
