Description Michal Jaegermann 2000-09-16 16:47:45 EDT
Newly released security update upgrading xpdf to version xpdf-0.91-1.5x
is using in defaults file /usr/share/fonts/default/Type1/ path which
does not exist on 5.x systems.  This should be instead
/usr/share/ghostscript/fonts/.

Leaving app-defaults file untouched leads to a "Segmentation fault"
on a startup.  After corrections xpdf works as expected.
