Not quite. acroread is still the default PDF parser, but the acroread-
specific arguments are now part of the pdf_parser attribute, rather than
being appended later, so that the pdf_parser can be set to xpdf with its
own unique arguments instead.

I get this warning too, on my Red Hat 4.2 system. The actual handling of
locales hasn't changed, so it doesn't mean there's a new problem that wasn't
there before. It just didn't tell you before if setlocale() returned NULL.
