Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kdegraphics

When I print a pdf file that includes hyperlinks, these links are printed in a red rectangle by kpdf.
I realize that those red borders are there to indicate that it is a link but what's the point of that on a printed page ?
If I am to be told that this is not a bug but a feature, may I just say that it didn't show this behaviour in the past and that at least there 
should be an option to disable it. (There is an option to display those borders or not on screen but I didn't find any to disable them on paper).

The pdf I have is created by latex -> dvips -> ps2pdf and the latex file
uses the hyperref package with option dvips.

I consider this is a bug in kpdf  (and not latex or whatever) because it
didn't happen in previous versions of kpdf and it doesn't happen with

My version of kpdf : 4:3.5.7-1ubuntu6 (gutsy).
