Summary: \pdfstartlink node doesn't show its node contents 
Category: Primitives
Group: None
Resolution: None

Initial Comment:
\showlists and \showbox are useful tools for debugging.
However the node generated by \pdfstartlink does not show
its children.

Example for iniTeX or plain TeX:

\parfillskip=0pt plus 1fil

  \pdfstartlink user{}%
    \vrule width 10pt height 10pt

\vrule width 20pt height 20pt
\hbox{\vrule width 30pt height 30pt}%
\pdfstartlink user{}%
\vrule width 40pt height 40pt

The output does not show the rule for 10pt and 40pt, e.g.
  > \box0=
  .\pdfstartlink(*+*)x* action user{}

Yours sincerely
