Resolution: None

Initial Comment:
The patch is based on pdftex-1.40.9.

It fixes the bug #993 `/Names array not sorted correctly'
by correcting function `str_less_str'.

In theory pdfTeX can still be fooled by
* invalid pdf strings and
* equal destination names that only differs
  in the way of escaping.

But both problems can be solved at macro level by passing
the name argument of \pdfdest through \pdfescapestring.

Yours sincerely
