Even that was never done. I've send it to help-texinfo@ as I didn't
want to open a (possibly) bogus bug in an (possibly) existing BTS.

Well, I took pcl-cvs.texi, which belongs to xemacs21-basesupport in
Debian as an example, texinfo 2003-02-03.16 and acroread 5.06. When I
click on the bookmarks at the left side the view doesn't jump to the
headlines I was clicking on, but rather to any point on the page...

Well, I was speaking accidentally about another phenomenon: When I
click on a link, which points to another headline inside the
document, the headline I want to reach is shortly above the visible
area. Maybe that is intended.

I'll do it in personal mail if you like.

OK, will be my next step. I'll try to reproduce that bug with another
version of Acrobat Reader.

Many Thanks,
