Do we have an example of a PDF that he is trying to use here?

I use a number of different readers at work and they all behave
differently and on different operating systems. The information "Custom
protocol handlers aren't supported by Adobe Reader X and later for
security reasons." isn't very explanatory in the context of LilyPond.

To help the bug squad could you articulate more clearly what is needed
here than just forwarding some thread from another list?

It puts people off trying to find out the information to create or
investigate the different behaviour. I've already spent 10 mins trying
to work out what the *specific* problem is, how it relates to LP and how
to even validate this isn't just something on someone's own environment
that might not be a problem elsewhere.
