I haven't Acrobat 5.0.6 on my computer. I have versions 5.0.8 and
7.0.8. With both versions I see the page in bold.

However, as you said, there's no problem with gv.

That's really strange indeed.

I tried with tex, dvips, ps2pdf and the page isn't bold anymore but:
- there're no links in the pdf
- images do not display
- there're some other problems, such as black lines in the margin

IMO, there's really a bug somewhere. It's in my texinfo file, or in the
tools I use. I generated the pdf manual with this command:
texi2pdf -q --pdf cinelerra.texi

In texi2pdf man page I see:

"Problems with this script should be reported to the author or to the
teTeX list, <address@hidden> (mailing list).
Problems with texi2dvi(1) should be reported to Karl Berry, the texinfo
maintainer, at <address@hidden> (mailing list)"

I think I could report a bug on the teTeX list, don't you think?
