Description of problem:

Errata RHSA-2007:0021 calls for release 7.0.9 of Adobe Reader.  That RPM is 
installing successfully on my systems, but the splashscreen is reporting 7.0.8, 
and so is Help|About.

I wouldn't normally be so concerned, but since this is of level Critical, it's 
pretty darn important that 7.0.9 is what's actually executing.



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

acroread-7.0.9-1.2.0.EL4


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  install acroread-7.0.9-1.2.0.EL4

2.  verify that the executable is in control of that package:  "rpm -
qf /usr/bin/acroread"

3.  "/usr/bin/acroread -version" reports 7.0.9

4.  application shows 7.0.8 in splashscreen and in "Help | About Adobe Reader 
7.0"
 

Actual results:


Expected results:

Confirmed that this is an Adobe release problem, and not a packaging error on
RH's end.  Adobe has been notfied through a generic mail form -- never did find
an actual bug DB over there.

Package I tested:
a8e79a1af58f90640cf9e7e1532a5745  AdobeReader_enu-7.0.9-1.i386.tar.gz
