Bug#773669: See Also isrcsubmit-config(5) missing

Package: isrcsubmit
Version: 2.0.0-1
Severity: normal
File: /usr/share/man/man1/isrcsubmit.1.gz

Hash: SHA1

The man page has:


but the package doesn't ship that manpage, nor does it appear any other
package does. I see a doc/isrcsubmit-config.5.rst in the source package, so
it appears that it just didn't make to the binary package.

Bug#773668: okular shows "jumping" letters in pdf documents generated using pdflatex with russian babel

Package: okular
Version: 4:4.8.4-3+b1
Severity: normal
Tags: l10n

Steps to reproduce:
* Create the following file tex.tex:
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed ...
* pdflatex tex.tex
* okular tex.pdf
* Adjust zoom until you will see ugly "jumping" letters (i. e. one letter is up, and the following letter in
the same word is down). For example, on my laptop with screen resolution 1600 x 900 pixels and physical size
214.8 cm x 381.9 cm zoom 100 % will go

What I see? Well, "jumping" letters. I see something like this: "LOrEm IpSum DOlOr SIT AmEt ...". See
screenshot: http://picpaste.com/y-gh3PH69b.png .

What I expected to see? Normal beautiful text.

Including [russian]{babel} is mandatory to reproduce the bug. [english]{babel} will not go.

But the text itself need not to be in Russian. You don't need even \usepackage[...]{inputenc}.

latex tex.tex + okular tex.dvi - no bug.

latex tex.tex + dvipdfm tex.dvi + okular tex.pdf - no bug.

Damien 'drazzib' Raude-Morvan and I tried to reproduce this bug in
chroots (with sbuild) in both jessie and sid:

* using the current stumpwm package from sid and setting clisp as the

We were in each case unable to reproduce this bug both about the build

I'm quite proud of this prominent contribution to Debian :-)

Unfortunately the two new strings did not get a review on 
But I had a second and a third glance at the translation.
