thanks for testing. Seems to be in the pdflastlink change file, somehow
related to the replacement of

    obj_annot_ptr(obj_ptr) := p;


    obj_annot_ptr(pdf_link_objnum(p)) := p;

in do_link(). The original made sense, as the obj_ptr was just freshly
created. But no idea what the patched code does, which does not use
obj_ptr (shouldn't it?). The macros resolved look like:

obj_annot_ptr(pdf_link_objnum(p)) := p;
obj_aux(pdf_link_objnum(p)) := p;
obj_tab[pdf_link_objnum(p)].int4 := p;
obj_tab[mem[p+6].int].int4 := p;

This is one for Ralf...

Regards, Hartmut
