Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 16966
xdvi fails when ps file names contain ":"
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
One of our users has managed to exercise an odd bug
in xdvi. He's including ps files with names containing colons
(e.g., "fig:absorb.ps") in his document. Apparently xdvi
assumes that any file name containing a colon is a URL, and crashes
with the following error:
Cannot locate URL: fig:absorb.ps
I haven't been able to find any way to turn this behavior off
without recompiling xdvi.
