Description of problem:
ggv gives an error every time I try to open a PDF.  It says:
  Error while scanning pdf file /home/winston/ALTIVECPIM.pdf:
but doesn't say anything else.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run 'ggv file.pdf'

Actual Results:  A window pops up with the message,
  Error while scanning pdf file /home/winston/ALTIVECPIM.pdf:
but no more information.

Expected Results:  It should have shown the document.

Additional info:

I don't know whether it fails with all PDFs, but I've tested it with PDFs
created via latex->dvips->ps2pdf, one created by Mac OS X's print to PDF, and a
PDF downloaded from Motorola, and none have worked.

The version in RawHide seems to open pdf files (though we're limited by
ghostscript as to how well they're supported).
