Description Chris Howells 2002-12-05 15:58:32 UTC
Version:           0.13.2 (using KDE 3.1.9)
Compiler:          gcc version 2.95.4 20011002 (Debian prerelease)
OS:          Linux (i686) release 2.4.20acpidebug

Try opening a file on the command line with an absolute filename:

kghostview /floppy/mathcad.ps

Opening fails because kghostview tries to treat this as a relative pathname, when it is in fact an absolute one.

Oops, fixed recently in HEAD by pmax and dfaure. Apologies.
