NEW BUGS
--------

#687510 - CUSTOMER - pdfwrite: Acrobat 6.0 paints notdef instead spaces
customer: #130
assigned: ??

Viewing our PDF, the user observes boxes instead space characters.
The problem explanation appears in the bug 687464 starting from
Comment #19.  Igor can't reproduce it on any of his systems.

#687511 - INTERNAL - shadinds: infitite recursion
submitted by: igor
assigned: igor

Reproduced on Windows with ppmraw -r72 .  The reason is that
fn_ElIn_is_monotonic is called with a value outside the function
domain.

#687512 - USER - erroneous /invalidfont error reported by gs8.14
		 pdfwrite (spr4204)
assign: ray?

User complains that and /inavlidfont error that happens only with 8.14
and only when using pdfwrite without the ps2pdf script (ie, minus -c
.setpdfwrite).  Waiting for more information to try and reproduce.

#687514 - USER - Patches to build with long long on systems without int64
assign: ralph?

The patches below allow gs 8.30 to build with gcc 2.7.2.1 under SCO
ODT 2.0.  They should apply to other systems that support an 8 byte
"long long" but do not have system headers that define the various
int64 types.

#687516 - USER - some kind of unicode problem
assign: ??

User complains that the file fails, but Alex can't confirm it and
suggests that perhaps a decoding resource is missing in the user's
installation.

#687518 - INTERNAL - Jasper headers pollute namespace
submitted by: ralph
assigned: ralph

jasper.h includes among other things jas_types.h, which doesn't so
much define types used by the libjasper api as pull in a bunch of
headers and basic typedefs for the convenience the of the library's
own compile, polluting the namespace of the client application.  In
particular, the inclusiong of stdbool.h is causing a conflict with
Ghostscript's local definition of the bool type on some systems.
