Hrm.. there's something different about the 8.3 A4 PDF and the 9.0 A4
PDF on the website. I see the problem you're describing with the 8.3
manual, but not the 9.0 manual. Not sure what that could be, and it's
hard for me to poke at since openjade segfaults for me when trying to
build the PDF.

Not sure I understand this problem, but I'm using gnome's "Document
Viewer" on Ubuntu, and when I check View->Side Pane, I can navigate
through chapters in the PDF.

This is probably as good a place as any to complain. Maybe someone who
is able to build the PDFs can check whether the 8.3 PDF links are
mangled when they build themselves -- I'm wondering whether perhaps a
PDF compression step done by the website is causing this?
