Package: advi
Version: 1.6.0-10
Severity: minor

advi seems to do some antialiasing that ends up with lines that are
much too faint on typical Postscript files.  I've attached a
side-by-side comparison of advi vs. evince and a copy of the PS file
used, but almost any file will show this behaviour.

This only seems to happen when the total image size is less than some

With the most recent version of advi I find no difference in the boldness
of the lines dislayed by advi and xdvi or gv on your example. Hence, I am
closing this bug now. If you disagree please feel free to reopen.

Cheers -Ralf.
