Default Reporting same bug in different packages

Thanks for spotting this bug. Your contribution to Debian is
appreciated.


What would be the right way:
* File two bugs and refer to each other in a additional message


I was curious and took a look at these packages' Depends: field, and
they do not share many dependencies. I was suspecting a library would be
culprit in the bad rendering, but this doesn't seem the case, so, IMHO,
I would file a bug with each viewer, so that each code gets fixed.


Well, both do use libpoppler5… which is a PDF rendering library.

My 2cents,
