[bug-gv] zoom problem with pdf-files

hi there,

I'd like to report the following problem (confirmed by  m. costabel,
cf. Cc):

when viewing a pdf-file, the file is initially correctly displayed but
`gv' allows zooming in  only if `gv' was called on a bare file name
such as:

gv some_file.pdf.

if started with a relative or absolute path in front, such as 

gv some_path/some_file.pdf

I get the error message:

Error: /invalidfileaccess in --file--
Operand stack:
(/Users/vdh/tt.pdf)   (r)
Execution stack:
%interp_exit   .runexec2   --nostringval--   --nostringval--
%--nostringval--   2   %stopped_push   --nostringval--   --nostringval--
%--nostringval--   false   1   %stopped_push   1   3   %oparray_pop   1
%3   %oparray_pop   1   3   %oparray_pop   1   3   %oparray_pop
%.runexec2   --nostringval--   --nostringval--   --nostringval--   2
%%stopped_push   --nostringval--
Dictionary stack:
--dict:1118/AFPL Ghostscript 8.51: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1

--dict:105/127(ro)(G)--   --dict:251/347(G)--
Current allocation mode is local

in the `gv' error window. 

more precisely, e.g. for a file in my home directory:

gv some_file.pdf            -- works
gv ./some_file.pdf          -- works
gv ~/some_file.pdf          -- does not work (zooming fails)
gv /Users/vdh/some_file.pdf -- does not work (zooming fails).

on the other hand, viewing of postscript files works in either case,

gv some_file.ps
gv some_path/some_file.ps

both work as they should. I don't have the slightest idea what is

this is with MacOSX 10.4.9. and gv 3.6.1 (installed via fink 0.27.1)).
my `.gv' file looks like

GV.antialias: False
GV.watchFile: True
GV.watchFileFrequency: 2500

I only now cornered the problem (which previously appeared to be of the
"now you see it, now you don't" variety), but think I observe this
since about 6-12 month).
