Well, better being able to save fill in a form and save it, than not
being able to at all. I heard of that bug though, and even if it
doesn't affect me (since I don't use Acrobat Reader anyway, and I
don't send those files anywhere), it's nice to hear that the bug seems
to be fixed now, so maybe this is not an issue next time I upgrade
Ubuntu (to 14.04).

Kind regards
