As it happens, on my computer, using Linux, both xpdf and
Acrobat Reader 7.0 display all bookmarks by default. Here is my

 \placebookmarks [chapter,section] [chapter]

If I change the line to 
 \placebookmarks [chapter,section] [chap]

It works as described by Hans above.

But I can live with that. My real problem is with bookmarking
the table of contents. If I use this configuration:
I get a double bookmark. All other combinations yield no bookmark
at all. I tried changing the name from Contents to Contenzz and
I got two occurrences of Contentzz in the bookmarks.

Messing with the first parameter [chapter] yields either no
bookmark or a double bookmark.
Also, on the TOC proper, the word Contents (or Contentzz) is repeated twice,
in body font, ahead of the bold faced and larger title generated
by \completecontent. 
The documentation on this feature is a bit sparse. I looked at
the source but the comments there did not address this
