Hi, Markus. I was just browsing through the archives and came across
your problem report. Can you do the following: abaloneandchifoumi.pdf application/pdf \
           abaloneandchifoumi.pdf | head -2 | cat -v -t -e

It should indicate what, if anything, the script is outputing.

Could you also post your external_parsers attribute setting, and
a diff listing comparing your current to the unmodified
contrib/ from the 3.1.4 source tree? Something is apparently
spitting out garbage lines to htdig, so hopefully this will help get to
the bottom of it.
