I think I understand now what is happening: the KDE file managers download
the PDF file to a temporary directory and then launch Acrobat Reader on
the temporary file (because Acrobat Reader doesn't use kio); while Nautilus
refuses to open the PDF in Acrobat Reader (because Reader doesn't use
gnome-vfs).
