Bug#228932: kghostview fails to open links to pdf files from some applications

Package: kghostview
Version: 4:3.1.5-1
Severity: important


  It seems that kghostview has a problem opening direct links to pdf
  files that are not accessed via the browser.  
  For example, if I am sent a link such as http://example.com/file.pdf through psi, or even in an email received in kmail, clicking on the link will open
  kghostview, open the "Loading progress" dialogue, and sit there at 0%
  indefinitely.  However, cancelling the loading dialogue, and then
  opening the location through file->open recent causes the file to be
  opened immediately.  Obviously this is a bit of a pain, and will
  definitely cause trouble for those who are not aware of the
  workaround.  Thanks,
