           Summary: mupdf fails to open relative hyperlinks to local files
           Product: MuPDF
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P4
         Component: mupdf

Created an attachment (id=8002)
 --> (http://bugs.ghostscript.com/attachment.cgi?id=8002)
a sample PDF document collection that demonstrates the bug

This problem can be reproduced on the 0.9 Windows version of the mupdf viewer
and on Android viewers which use the mupdf engine such as APV.

Open the attached zip file and navigate to the "Parent" directory and open
"Parent\test parent document.pdf" 

Click on any of the hyperlinks.

Nothing happens; the linked PDF should open in mupdf.

Look in the PDF file "Parent\Child 1\test child document1.pdf" for a report
which details the structure of the hyperlinks in these files. The PDF files
were produced with Adobe PDFMaker running on Microsoft Word 2003 on Windows XP.
The resulting PDF files and their hyperlinks behave properly in Adobe reader
for Windows and in Foxit reader for Windows and in Adobe Reader on Linux. 

Please consider addressing this problem - it affects many open source PDF
readers that are based on mupdf. There is a real use case for massively
hyperlinked PDF document collections.
