Bug#540975: Referenced program names are not included in PDF result

Package: developers-reference
Version: 3.4.1
Severity: normal

I noticed a rendering defect in the PDF output. When the text refers
to a program described in a particular section, the name of the
program is ommitted in the PDF result. For example, section 5.6.1 has
the following in the PDF output:

    You may also find the Debian packages Section A.5.1 or Section
    A.5.2 useful when uploading packages.

Whereas the txt version has:

    You may also find the Debian packages Section A.5.1, ?dupload? or
    Section A.5.2, ?dput? useful when uploading packages.

I've verified the PDF output is the same in both evince and acroread,
so I'm quite sure the problem is in the PDF file and not in the


PS. Presumably the bug is not in developers-reference, but in the
package it uses to create the PDF result of its documentation. But I
wanted to report this bug where I found it before forgetting it. Feel
free to reassign the bug to the appropriate package.
